GLAD Answers: Potential LGBTQ Executive Order Contact Form
We recently saw the first indication of how the Trump administration could target LGBTQ people, as a draft Executive Order cynically claiming to be about “religions freedom” was leaked to the press. While such an order has yet to be signed, GLAD is preparing – and we want you to be prepared, too.
In order to protect members of our community who could be immediately affected by the issuance of an LGBTQ-focused Executive Order, we want to hear from you now.
Please contact us using the form below.
Far from protecting actual religious freedom, the language leaked last week is intended to create a sweeping license to discriminate in a variety of ways, including by the federal government and for entities that receive funding from the federal government.
Are you, or is someone you know:
- An employee of the federal government who could see repercussions in your workplace, like losing protections you have as an employee or being treated differently because of your LGBTQ status?
- An employee of an individual or entity that receives money from the federal government which may claim some kind of religious purpose?
- Receiving or considering adoption services from an organization with a religious mission that receives money from the federal government?
- Receiving or considering other social services for yourself or a family member from an organization with a religious mission that receives money from the federal government?
If so, please let us know in the form below, and we will follow up with you shortly. Thank you.
