Success in the Senate!

In a vote of 2 to 1, the Senate Judiciary B committee voted to move the Louisiana Non-Discrimination Act forward. With this success today, we must and will continue to push forward.

Discrimination is not a Louisiana value and we are proud that the committee agrees that Louisiana law must forbid all forms of discrimination.


Senator JP Morrell is a vanguard and champion for equality. We thank him for authoring the Louisiana Non-Discrimination Act, and appreciate his continued leadership on behalf of the LGBT community statewide.

Next up, the bill heads for a vote before the full Senate. Stay tuned, we will keep you updated!

With Equality,


SarahJane Brady
Executive Director, Forum for Equality
