Thank you, Senators!

This is the second year the full Louisiana Senate was able to vote on employment non-discrimination. And while we came up short, we gained new votes in support. It is important to thank those who stand on the right side of history.

Thank the Senators who voted in favor of the Louisiana Employment Non-Discrimination Act.

Send a thank you to Sen. Allian (R), Sen. Barrow (D), Sen. Bishop (D), Sen. Boudreaux (D), Sen. Carter (D), Sen. Colomb (D), Sen. Luneau (D), Sen. Morrell (D), Sen. Peterson (D), Sen. G. Smith (D), Sen. J. Smith (R) for voting YES on the Louisiana Employment Non-Discrimination Act – SB 155.

And it is with a full heart of gratitude in which we thank Sen. Troy Carter for authoring and advocating for the passage of LENDA this session.

We know all people should be treated fairly. The LGBT community wants to be judged based on performance and qualifications  — nothing more, nothing less. Forum for Equality will continue to fight for full lived equality in Louisiana.

With Equality,

SarahJane Guidry

Executive Director, Forum for Equality
