Virginia Human Rights Act: non-discrimination in employment & housing (HB 2129)

Legislative Action Summary

My legislation would make discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity illegal with regard to employment, housing, and public accommodations. The law already covers covers race, color, religion, national origin, sex, pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions, age, marital status, disability, and status as a veteran. I plan to propose this extension to the act every year until it is passed.
