Join in helping pass SB 2279! Protect ALL North Dakotans
Senate Bill 2279, an anti-discrimination bill, will come for a vote as soon as next week. SB 2279 would amend the North Dakota Human Rights Act and the North Dakota Fair Housing Act to provide the same protections from discrimination for all North Dakotans. This is important so that no North Dakotan has to live in fear of being fired from her job or kicked out of his apartment based on sexual orientation.
Businesses, job seekers and their families look for strong and supportive communities where they can thrive and call home. Currently, 21 other states in the country provide protections and North Dakota must be competitive to fill the 20,000 job openings in our state.
A recent poll conducted by DFM Research reported that a majority of North Dakota residents over the age of 18 support SB2279 to prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation.
We need to be sure this message is heard loud and clear!
Can you join us for a night of action to tell our senators across the state to vote in favor of SB227? Since the vote will likely come up during the week of Valentine’s Day, we thought it pretty fitting to encourage our senators to recognize Love is Love and support 2279!
Please join us for statewide efforts as we reach out to legislators, craft letters to the editors, and make sure our voices are heard!
