Know Your Rights: National State of Emergency for LGBTQ+ Americans

Whether you are going out of state for work or leisure — worried about safety in your current state — or headed to college in a new state soon –– we want to help you understand the laws and protections for LGBTQ+ people.

With more than 80 new anti-LGBTQ+ laws across the states this year and the extremist Supreme Court actively granting a license to discriminate against queer people in the 303 Creative case, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) has declared a national state of emergency. This unprecedented spike in state-sanctioned discrimination has created hostile and dangerous environments for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ+) people.

But HRC is here to help you stay safe and aware of your rights –– in whatever state you find yourself in. Simply submit the form below and you’ll instantly receive via SMS important, topline information about the laws in your state, as well as more information and ways to take action.

You'll receive email updates from HRC. You can unsubscribe at any time. By providing my mobile phone number, I agree that HRC and its agents may contact me by mobile phone call and text message regarding HRC programs, events and membership. You can unsubscribe at any time.
