United Against Hate™ - Fighting Back on State Legislative Attacks On LGBTQ+ People

LGBTQ+ people are under a coordinated attack in state legislatures across the country, with a record number of anti-LGBTQ+ bills on track to be considered in 2022. The Human Rights Campaign is at the frontlines fighting back. Through our United Against Hate initiative, we’re organizing nationwide and mobilizing pro-equality voices in an effort to halt hundreds of bills from moving through legislative chambers.

So far this year, we’ve seen more than 300 anti-LGBTQ+ bills introduced in states across the country. Instead of focusing on real issues like economic relief, healthcare or infrastructure, politicians are targeting LGBTQ+ people.

Many of these discriminatory bills target transgender kids, including dozens upon dozens of bills that try to ban trans kids from playing sports or receiving life-saving health care. These bills are dangerous and discriminatory, and they have economic implications: More than 150 major corporations have so far signed a letter warning that these bills will have a negative effect on their employees, customers, competitiveness, and state and national economies.


Trans kids want to play sports for the same reasons all kids do: to be part of a team, to learn discipline, and above all, to have fun with their friends. But lawmakers across the country are trying to pass laws that would ban trans youth from participating in school sports.

LGBTQ+ people belong in every state, every city, every neighborhood. These bills don’t. Help us fight back.
