Thank South Carolina Lawmakers for Sponsoring LGBTQ-inclusive Nondiscrimination!
In most of South Carolina, people remain vulnerable to discrimination in key areas of life – and it’s time for that to change. A new bill proposed in 2023, H.3738, would prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity, and natural hairstyle in employment, housing, and places of public accommodation. No one should face discrimination because of who they are, who they love, or how they express themselves.
We're grateful to the lawmakers who filed this landmark bill in South Carolina. This legislation takes a particular look at the experiences of LGBTQ people with intersecting identities and will be especially impactful for BIPOC communities and transgender people, who disproportionately experience discrimination and violence in South Carolina.
