Justice for All in Cheltenham Township

As a resident of Cheltenham Township, I believe that all people, including gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender individuals, deserve respect and dignity and that this must be accomplished through legislation at the federal, state, and local levels. Since the Congress and the State Legislature consistently refuse to address this pressing issue, we must do so in Cheltenham Township. I strongly encourage you to join 21 other Pennsylvania communities, including many neighboring townships and boroughs, and support the creation of a Cheltenham Township Human Relations Commission. Such a commission is essential to educating and protecting our residents and providing a local mechanism for addressing discrimination. Please help Cheltehnham Township warrant our reputation as a progressive community that values all of its citizens.

Why is this important?

Cheltenham Area Residents for Equality (CARE) is working to enact a local Human Relations Commission ordinance in Cheltenham Township to guarantee basic human rights to all without regard to race, color, sex, religion, ancestry, genetic information, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, familial status, marital status, age, mental or physical disability, use of guide or support animals and/or mechanical aids. We hope you'll support our efforts. We CARE! For more information go to
