Today HRC welcomed a proposed Utah non-discrimination bill that extends employment and housing non-discrimination protections to include sexual orientation and gender identity.
“This is an extraordinary moment for the state of Utah, for LGBT Americans, and for the Mormon Church, which, by supporting this legislation, shows a willingness to align with others on the right side of history,” said HRC President Chad Griffin. “The desire exhibited by the Mormon Church to work toward common ground should serve as a model for other faith traditions here in the United States.”
The introduction of the bill, with support from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is the culmination of seven years of unstinting work by Equality Utah to protect all state residents from discrimination at work and at home. The legislation, S.B. 296, whose negotiators included Equality Utah Chairman Clifford Rosky, goes to its first hearing tomorrow.
