Thank WV Senate President Mitch Carmichael for Supporting LGBTQ Nondiscrimination!

For more than 20 years, Fairness West Virginia and allies across the state have worked to pass statewide legislation protecting LGBTQ people from discrimination. Next year could be historic, because Senate President Mitch Carmichael announced he’s committed to working to address the discrimination the LGBTQ community faces—a strong show of bipartisan support from the leader of the Senate.

Now is the time to move fairness forward in West Virginia. No one should be denied a job, a place to live, or other opportunities because of who they are or who they love. Our economy and our communities are stronger when everyone is free to make a living and support their family without fearing discrimination. But right now, West Virginia is one of 30 states with no explicit statewide LGBTQ nondiscrimination protections.  

Thanks to Senator Carmichael’s support for LGBTQ nondiscrimination, we are now closer than ever to passing these commonsense nondiscrimination protections in West Virginia. 

Please help us thank Senator Carmichael for supporting LGBTQ nondiscrimination. Let’s make sure he knows we’ll have his back when the 2020 legislative session starts in January.
