Businesses for Fairness

Business leaders across the Mountain State agree: It’s time to pass the Fairness Act to protect LGBT West Virginians from discrimination.


West Virginia Businesses for Fairness is a partnership of large and small businesses committed to strengthening West Virginia’s economy by passing the Fairness Act. The Fairness Act will update our state’s existing nondiscrimination laws to protect LGBTQ West Virginians from discrimination in employment, housing, and public spaces.

West Virginia Businesses for Fairness agree that passing the Fairness Act isn’t just the right thing to do—it’s the smart thing to do economically. Ensuring a level playing field for LGBTQ West Virginians will help foster new investments, attract tourism, enable employers to attract and retain top talent, and empower LGBTQ West Virginians to work at their full potential.

When everyone is free from the fear of discrimination, our communities are stronger and our state is a healthier, more vibrant place to live, work, and raise a family. That’s why we call on the West Virginia legislature to pass the Fairness Act and send the message that our state is open for business to all.
