Two Anti-Gay Initiatives Could Be Put To The Vote In 2016 In Colorado

Written by 




In 2016, two initiatives that go against equality for LGBT people in Colorado could be submitted to vote.

Indeed, if they get the 98,000 signatures needed, a first initiative redefining equal marriages as civil unions and a second initiative that would allow companies not wishing to serve same-sex couples to hire a third-party contractor to do the work, could be part of the 2016 ballot.

«Dangerous discriminatory measures like these have no place in any state’s constitution,» Matt McTighe, Freedom for All Americans’ campaign manager, said in a news release. «We’ve seen in Indiana and other states how similar discriminatory measures will not only harm a state’s reputation, but can cost a state thousands of jobs and millions of dollars.»

The organization plans to oppose these two initiatives.

You should know that Colorado is among the few states, they are only 17, to have laws protecting LGBT people against discrimination.
