Therefore, we also offer housing to qualified applicants without regard to sexual orientation or gender identity."
"Equality is our Business. We are proud to display the sticker in the entrance window in our MS office. Mississippi would be stronger and more prosperous if workplace equality and equal treatment in housing and public accommodation were the norm."
HRC Mississippi is working to advance equality for LGBT Mississippians who have no state or municipal level protections in housing, workplace, or public accommodations; legal state recognition for their relationships and families; state rights to jointly adopt children; and state protections from hate crimes. HRC Mississippi works to realize a future where everyone is treated fairly by changing hearts, minds and laws.
The Human Rights Campaign is America's largest organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality. HRC envisions a world where LGBT people are embraced as full members of society at home, at work and in every community.
