Winston Salem North Carolina LGBTQ Non-discrimination Ordinance

Winston Salem North Carolina LGBTQ Non-discrimination Ordinance

Members of the LGBTQ community deserve to be protected from discriminatory practices within our city. We are asking that an ordinance be introduced that prohibits discriminating practices on the basis of gender identity and sexual orientation.

Why is this important?

Allowing businesses to discriminate against people on the basis of gender identity and sexual orientation creates a bad reputation for the city of Winston Salem. As a member of the LGBTQ community I wonder where we draw the line with discrimination. Will I be turned away from healthcare? Or will I be turned away from a bank next? Discrimination in our city, is a threat to equality across our nation. We must do better to protect those from discrimination and do everything we can to prohibit the disruption of commerce. The Constitution grants us all “life” and “liberty” and warns against depravation of the two. I’m calling on you to protect “life” and “liberty” by enacting an ordinance that protects LGBTQ members from discrimination in business and in employment.
