ISSUES: Rep. Marilyn Strickland

FOR

LGBTQ

The LBGTQ community faces discrimination by some businesses and institutions based on traditional family ideals and religious views. These views have continued to evolve rapidly in the past decade, and there is a shift toward bipartisan support of protections of LGBTQ individuals among voters. source
NEWS:

DETAILS:

AGAINST Republicans

There is a rise in republican voter interest in protecting the rights of LGBTQ individuals. Over half support extra protections to avoid discrimination in workplaces, businesses, and attaining housing. The protection of businesses and institutions based on religious grounds is weakening as religious views evolve. source

FOR Democrats

Democrats feel a person’s identity should not interfere with their ability to work, vote, marry, attain housing, or other basic life tasks. They focus on equal rights in all areas of life, and do not feel religious beliefs should be a factor when businesses choose to hire or serve an individual. source


FOR
