A Blueprint for Positive Change
Through the power that our Constitution provides the president and executive branch, the presidential administration has the power to institute much-needed changes in federal policy without congressional action. The president can appoint officials who are receptive to civil rights, and judges who respect fundamental constitutional principles and enforce legal protections for all Americans. The president is also empowered to direct administrative actions that will improve the lives of millions of LGBTQ people.
HRC's 2015 Blueprint for Positive Change provides a checklist of actions the administration could take to change the lives of LGBTQ Americans for the better.
