Without comprehensive equal rights legislation at the federal level, LGBTQ+ people are subject to an inconsistent patchwork of legal protections in their states and local communities. This leaves millions of our most marginalized people at risk of potential discrimination at work and in their daily lives.
That’s why The Human Rights Campaign fights for LGBTQ+ equality alongside lawmakers at the local and state levels across the country. Find out what HRC is doing in Texas and how you can help secure equal rights for all of its LGBTQ+ citizens.
Tell state legislators to stop attacking the transgender community NOW! Your signature will send a message that we won’t back down when these lawmakers come for our community.
HRC has seven field organizers and four offices across Texas who work to mobilize opposition to any anti-LGBTQ legislation.
HRC has staff on the ground and four volunteer steering committees in Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston, San Antonio and Austin. HRC continues to work alongside Equality Texas, ACLU of Texas, Texas Freedom Network, the Transgender Education Network of Texas, Lambda Legal, and others on the ground to battle against dangerous or harmful bills that attack the dignity of LGBTQ+ Texans. As a coalition, we will stand together; we will support and comfort one another, and we will continue to work together until we defeat every bill this session that discriminates against LGBTQ+ Texans.
