Dear 5849376,

The Indianapolis Star front page: Fix this now.

There's only one way to fix the situation in Indiana: Pass a statewide law that protects Indiana residents from discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

A coalition of pro-equality organizations, companies and individuals called Freedom Indiana just launched legislation that would protect lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Indianans from discrimination. The "Fairness for All Hoosiers Act" will undo the harm unleashed by the so-called "Religious Freedom Restoration Act" signed by the governor that made it legal for businesses to refuse to serve gay people.

The Fairness for all Hoosiers Act would do two things:

  1. Update Indiana's state civil rights law to prohibit discrimination against LGBT Indiana residents in employment, housing and public accommodations.
  2. Clarify that the recently enacted so-called Religious Freedom Restoration Act cannot be used to undermine local or statewide civil rights protections.

After California passed the discriminatory Proposition 8, we missed our opportunity to capitalize on the immediate and nationwide opposition to a clearly unconstitutional law. But we have a chance in Indiana to undo this harm by immediately passing the Fairness for All Hoosiers Act.

We'll deliver your signature to Governor Mike Pence, President Pro Tem of the Indiana Senate David Long and Speaker of the Indiana House Brian Bosma. Click the link below to sign now:
