Welcome to the website for Mayors Against LGBT Discrimination – your portal to the coalition of nearly 200 mayors from more than 40 different states and the District of Columbia who are standing up for LGBT non-discrimination and standing against efforts to discriminate against LGBT people.
The Mayors Against LGBT Discrimination coalition formally launched in January 2017, following efforts from mayors in early 2016 to speak out against a wave of anti-LGBT legislation filed in states across the country, from North Carolina to Mississippi. Mayors Against LGBT Discrimination is a project of Freedom for All Americans, the bipartisan campaign to win comprehensive LGBT non-discrimination protections nationwide
Mayors have a unique and special role to play in protecting the rights and safety of residents and in advancing policies that move our communities and our country forward. That’s why so many mayors have signed onto the coalition to represent all of their constituents and speak out in favor of LGBT equality.
