Many of you are aware of the struggles Indiana has had related to equal rights. Last year the so-called Religious Freedom Restoration Act was jammed through the legislature and signed behind closed doors by Governor Pence. National fallout produced a public relations nightmare for the state.
The Indianapolis newspaper, IndyStar, published a full page editorial below the words FIX THIS NOW, calling for expanding protections to all Hoosiers. Although that law was modified, the LQBT community still does NOT have statewide protections.
With the new state legislative session beginning, IndyStar just published this great video editorial calling for the expansion of the states civil rights law. (the young black man in the center of the opening photo is Daniel, who attended North Meadow Friends at the time, and has since moved away).
Unfortunately, the one proposed piece of legislation to address this, is yet another example of trying to confuse the issue, and does not provide the needed protections.
