Washington, DC- Family Equality Council applauds President Barack Obama for signing an executive order today that bans discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees of federal contractors and that bars discrimination against federal employees who are transgender.
Statement from Executive Director, Gabriel Blau
“With the stroke of a pen this morning, President Barack Obama has reiterated his commitment to equality. At the foundation of every happy, healthy family is economic security – the ability to earn a living and the economic stability to provide for a dependent partner and children. Through this executive order, the President ensures protections for many of the LGBTQ families we serve so that they may better provide security and stability for their loved ones.
