Mayors Against LGBT Discrimination Coalition Gathers to Discuss Progress and Future EffortsBy Shane Stahl • January 25, 2018 • 3:17 pm
Today, January 25, dozens of members of Mayors Against LGBT Discrimination gathered in Washington, D.C. for the 2018 meeting of the coalition, which coincides with the coalition’s 1-year anniversary and the U.S. Conference of Mayors Winter Meeting. Freedom for All Americans created the Mayors coalition as a way to build and elevate support for non-discrimination protections for LGBTQ people nationwide.
“Mayors play an invaluable role in protecting and advocating for all of their constituents at the local level,” said Masen Davis, CEO of Freedom for All Americans. “Across the country, more than 250 cities have implemented comprehensive nondiscrimination protections for LGBT people that allow them to fully participate and thrive in their communities. In an administration that is increasingly advancing an agenda that harms LGBT people, Mayors Against LGBT Discrimination will continue to provide leadership and opportunities for cities to be at the forefront of advancing fairness and equal treatment for all Americans.”
Freedom For All Americans is proud of the work of the coalition, and excited to see it grow as we continue into 2018! To see a full summary of today’s meeting, click here — then be sure to view all our coalition members here.
