Do you support LGBT rights? We need your help!

ACTION NEEDED: We believe in a society that values fairness and equality, that’s why we are supporting two pro-LGBT bills being debated at the Wyoming Legislature, HB168 –Domestic partnerships-rights and responsibilities and HB169 - Marriage-definitions. But we need your help!   

These two bills have been assigned to the House Corporations Committee and will be heard at noon on Monday, January 28. Legislators need to hear from you! Please email the House Corporations Committee members and inform them that you support LGBT rights, and ask them to VOTE “YES” on HB168 and HB169.

You may also vocalize your support of these bills at the online voter hotline or by calling the telephone hotline -- 1-866-996-8683 (or 307-777-8683 for local callers within the Cheyenne area).  The telephone hotline is staffed only when the Legislature is in session, approximately 8:00-5:00 Monday-Friday.

The true measure of us as a state is how we treat each other. Every individual should have the opportunity to make a legal commitment to the person he or she loves. Thank you for helping us fight for equal rights in the Equality State!
