From our Gender Desk:
Bill # – HB1319
What the bill does –Prohibits discrimination based on gender identity. This bill amends our existing Law Against Discrimination (RSA 354-A) to add gender discrimination to the definition of prohibited acts.
Support / Oppose –Please support this bill which would confirm that it is unlawful to discriminate against our citizens on the basis of gender identity. This bill has broad bipartisan support and both the minority committee and majority committee recommend that it pass. Please extend basic civil rights to New Hampshire citizens and protect our citizens from gender identity discrimination.
Why: Without this law, our citizens can be denied housing, employment, use of places of public accommodation, and other civil rights because of that person’s gender identity.
