Good Day for Equality: AB 211 Passed Assembly

(Also at Nevada Stonewall)

Here's some actual good news to come out of Carson City today: AB 211 passed!

OK... So? So... This.

As of today, it's still "legal" to fire transgender people from work for no good reason. AB 211 will change that if passed and signed into law. We're now about 1/3 of the way there with Assembly passage, so now we need full Senate passage, then preferably a signature from The Governor. (If Sandoval vetoes, then we need at least 2/3 support from each house of The Legislature to override.)

So now is the perfect time to contact your State Senator and let them know you want AB 211 passed.
