Legislative Tracker: Religious Refusal Bills Tracking LGBT-Related Legislation Nationwide

Legislative Tracker: Religious Refusal Bills

During the 2019 legislative session dozens of states will consider legislation related to LGBTQ discrimination. Some bills will seek to advance the comprehensive nondiscrimination laws that LGBTQ people so sorely need, while others will almost certainly attempt to single out and target LGBTQ people for unfair and unequal treatment. Freedom for All Americans is tracking each relevant bill in our 2019 Legislative Tracker, in partnership with the Equality Federation.

Below, find bills related to creating religious refusals or exemptions, which can be used to justify anti-LGBTQ discrimination. Or navigate to other types of bills below:
