ACLU

News about the American Civil Liberties Union as it fights for LGBT issues as part of its broader mission around freedom of speech, and religion, and civil rights. The ACLU has a specific program, the LGBT Project founded in 1986, whose goal is to rid the United States of discrimination on the basis of gender identity and sexual orientation. The ACLU's main targeted areas are basic rights, parenting, marriage, youth, and transgender discrimination. The nonprofit organization is a powerful ally for protecting and promoting the rights of the LGBT community.

The law violates the Constitution by allowing state-contracted agencies to discriminate against LGBT people and others who offend their beliefs.
