HB135 is Dead
&
Time to S
upport SF153

Tonight, we took our first big step toward winning LGBT equality in Wyoming!After a flood of calls, emails and visits to our Wyoming State Legislature, the sponsors of HB135 withdrew the bill. It’s dead, y’all. We’re now closer to working towards real equality by passing SF153, our “ENDA” (Employee Non-Discrimination Act) which would provide workplace protections for LGBT workers. 

But we won’t stand for a “religious” exemption. Many people of faith, some LGBT themselves, will not allow religion to be weaponized in the workplace.

In the coming weeks, the ENDA bill should be heard in the Senate for crucial hearings and votes. In short: the legislative session is moving quickly — and we need your help to keep up the momentum every step of the way.

Submit your testimony now and tell members of Senate that the people of Wyoming support LGBT workers. Click here to submit now. 

Today’s decision to kill HB135 is a direct result of everything you’ve done to build this movement into one of the largest grassroots efforts Wyoming has ever seen.

Sincerely,
Shayna Alexander

P.S. We can’t do this work without volunteers and Public Education Coordinator Sara – pitch in $10 to make sure we can continue to fight for LGBT Wyomingites and their families across the state.
