Open to All

LGBT Community Centers Support Open to All Campaign

Open to All is the nationwide public engagement campaign to build awareness and understanding about the importance of our nation’s nondiscrimination laws  – and to defend the bedrock principle that when businesses open their doors to the public, they should be Open to All.

Local businesses are invited to stop by the DC Center and pick up a free Open to All window decal to display at your place of business.  Or, if you sign up online at business.opentoall.com you will receive a window decal by mail.

Over the past several years, there have been increasing efforts to undermine laws that protect Americans from discrimination.  In more than half the country, our state laws still do no explicitly protect LGBT Americans from discrimination in stores and restaurants, in the workplace, or in housing.  And even when laws are in place, we know that people are often still harassed, policed, and even denied service based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, religion and/or disability.

That’s why fair minded Americans are joining together to support updating our nondiscrimination laws and engaging businesses in their communities to be Open to All.  To learn more and take the pledge, visit business.opentoall.com.
