Dear Governor-Elect Kelly,
Please accept our gratitude for your promise to sign an Executive Order reinstating protections for LGBTQ state workers in Kansas as one of your first acts as Governor. This is an encouraging step in reversing the discriminatory policies of your predecessors and prioritizing this issue inspires great confidence in your commitment to LGBTQ people.
It is more important than ever that we have leadership that supports LGBTQ equality and acceptance -- and is willing to go the distance in preventing efforts to marginalize our community. This includes adopting statewide legislation that explicitly protects LGBTQ people in the workplace.
We are also very encouraged by your promise to find ways to halt the anti-LGBTQ adoption ban. This shameful attempt to use “religious freedom” as a pretense to discriminate against LGBTQ people is not only harmful to the community but to the hundreds of thousands of children in foster care that are in need of a loving home.
There is so much work to do towards achieving true LGBTQ acceptance in Kansas. We look forward to seeing what your Administration can achieve over the next four years. Thank you again for supporting LGBTQ Kansans.
