Local Leaders for Fairness

Local Leaders For Fairness

These elected city– and county-level officials have signed Equality Virginia’s statement supporting legislation and policies that include adding protections for sexual orientation and gender identity in workplace, housing, and public accommodation. They know that having non-discrimination policies in place makes Virginia a more welcoming and inclusive place to live, work, and visit.
