    ISSUES: Rep. Thelma Drake

    FOR

    Fighting discrimination and fighting the limiting of personal rights.

    DETAILS:

    FOR Republicans

    Both sides are against discrimination and bias against any individual.

    FOR Democrats

    Both sides are against discrimination and bias against any individual.


    AGAINST

    Diversity

    Diversity refers to differences in racial or ethnic classifications, age, gender, religion, philosophy, physical abilities, socioeconomic background, sexual orientation, or any other distinguishing factor. Most politicians are in favor of diversity. They differ on whether diversity should be legislated.

    DETAILS:

    AGAINST Republicans

    Republicans primarily protest diversity propositions because they feel the measures would force businesses to hire and give promotions based on race, gender, and other factors instead of skills and accomplishments. They also feel the focus on diversity creates divisive labels rather than an inclusive atmosphere. source

    FOR Democrats

    Democrats back the bill to repeal wealthy business tax cuts to fund proactive measures like education and a diverse resume pool that businesses can use to find qualified and diversified candidates. source


    AGAINST

    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

    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
