The NEPA Rainbow Alliance works closely with Equality Pennsylvania to achieve equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) Pennsylvanians through education and policy and legislative reform.
- Did you know that in most parts of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania it is perfectly legal to be fired on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity or expression?
- In only 17 of the state’s nearly 2,500 municipalities are anti-discrimination laws in effect to protect LGBT Pennsylvanians
- Further, there is currently no legal recourse for LGBT employees who are sexually harassed at work because of their sexual orientation or gender identity or expression in most of the state.
- And of course, it is still illegal for same-sex couples in Pennsylvania to marry, denying them the state benefits of marriage
The NEPA Rainbow Alliance works with Equality PA and numerous partner organizations - including legal groups, elected officials and candidates for public office.
