QLatinx has joined the Human Rights Campaign, the National LGBTQ Task Force, The National Center for Lesbian Rights, ACLU of Florida, Florida Trans Proud, and TransAction Florida as co-sponsors of Equality Florida's call for the passage of the Florida Competitive Workforce Act (FCWA), a fully-inclusive bill to explicitly ban discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
We support a fully inclusive Florida Competitive Workforce Act that explicitly protects LGBTQ individuals on the basis of employment, housing, and public accommodations. Excluding public accommodations protections would continue to leave LGBTQ communities—particularly the transgender community—at risk of grave harm, and gives credence to mistaken and discredited assumptions about who transgender people are. No one should be denied access to public spaces and to public life simply because of who they are.
