Today, our partners at the Movement Advancement Project (MAP) released a new report revealing that a shocking 70% of the geographic area of the United States lacks any city, county, or state employment protections for LGBT people, with comprehensive employment protections concentrated in just 30% of the country geographically.
LGBT Policy Spotlight: Local Employment Nondiscrimination Ordinances examines city and county NDOs that prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity in private employment. The report details where these ordinances are geographically, their growth over time, and the gaps in coverage that remain.
At Equality Federation, we know that local NDOs provide important job protections for thousands of LGBT individuals living in states that lack explicit statewide employment protections. We are proud to have collaborated with MAP on this critical report.
