Thank you, Mitch!

THANKyou_Mitch2Yesterday, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu responded to Governor Bobby Jindal’s discriminatory and desperate executive order by issuing his own executive order.

“With this executive order, I am issuing a clarifying call to the nation that New Orleans is an accepting, inviting city that thrives on its diversity and welcomes people from all walks of life with open arms,” said Mayor Landrieu. “In New Orleans, we believe religious liberty and freedoms should be protected and discrimination prohibited, and we have passed our own laws to reflect that principle. This executive order is an important, symbolic affirmation that discrimination in any form will not be tolerated in New Orleans – and it should not be tolerated anywhere in Louisiana.”

Forum for Equality sincerely thanks the mayor for standing up for LGBT equality and we ask you to do the same. Follow this link to send Mayor Landrieu your thanks for standing up to the Governor and leading the cities of Louisiana toward greater protections against discrimination.

Every year we grow in allies and numbers. The bipartisan victory in the Civil Law and Procedure committee against House Bill 707 and the willingness of leaders like Mayor Landrieu to stand up for equality for ALL Louisianans is a major step forward in the battle against bigotry.

With Equality,

Mary Griggs
Chair, Forum for Equality Louisiana
