Everyone in Louisiana deserves a fair opportunity to find a place to call home. The Louisiana State Legislative session just started last week, and we’re committed to making sure that state laws promote equal housing opportunity! GNOFHAC is working with a broad coalition of partners to expand housing choice for all Louisiana residents.
One crucial part of our full legislative agenda is equal housing protections for Louisianans regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or marital status. Currently in Louisiana, it is legal for landlords to discriminate against LGBT people. Will you take the first step with us in asking the Legislature to right that wrong?
Please take a moment right now to send an email to Louisiana House Commerce Committee Members, and ask them to expand housing choice for people on the basis of sexual orientation, gender expression, and marital status.
Have you experienced discrimination in housing on the basis of your sexual orientation, gender identity, or marital status? Please consider sharing your experience with us so that we can make sure state legislators fully understand the impacts that housing discrimination has on their constituents.
Download the LGBT housing rights fact sheet here, then support and send a message to legislators to expand these rights statewide!
P.S. Do you know anyone that has experienced housing discrimination on the basis of their sexual orientation, gender identity or marital status? Please encourage them to share their stories with us too!
