Washington – The Human Rights Campaign – the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender civil rights organization – today called the state of Minnesota the number one battleground for tolerance in the wake of a series of statements from leaders opposing basic protections for LGBT people.
“The stakes couldn’t be higher in Minnesota between moving toward an inclusive and welcoming state versus creating an environment where LGBT youth are told they’re not worthy of being considered full citizens,” said Human Rights Campaign President Joe Solmonese. “It’s time for fair-minded Minnesotans to stand up and say ‘enough is enough.’”
The Human Rights Campaign is America’s largest civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality. By inspiring and engaging all Americans, HRC strives to end discrimination against LGBT citizens and realize a nation that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all.
