Mayors Against LGBTQ Discrimination Holds Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. Posted on January 23, 2020

The Mayors Against LGBTQ Discrimination coalition held its briefing today at the annual U.S. Conference of Mayors, celebrating the accomplishments made toward protecting LGBTQ people from discrimination in housing, employment, and public spaces — including the passage of the Equality Act through the U.S. House of Representatives in May of last year.

The coalition also celebrated reaching the milestone of representation from all 50 states, as well as the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

The upcoming Supreme Court decision in three landmark cases of LGBTQ employment discrimination was among the topics discussed, in addition to the need to pass the Equality Act through the U.S. Senate and ongoing efforts to pass statewide nondiscrimination protections.
