ACTION ALERT: Attend Historic Committee Vote on LGBTQ Nondiscrimination Protections on Monday, April 24th! Urge Support from Your State Representative!

PYC Parent Warrior Melissa DeStefano (Montgomery County, PA) speaks at PYC's press conference on nondiscrimination legislation at the state Capitol in February 2020

On Monday, April 24th, 2023, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives Judiciary Committee is slated to vote on a bill to prohibit discrimination in employment, housing, and public accommodations on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. This will be only the second time that comprehensive LGBTQ nondiscrimination protections will get a committee vote.

We must now specifically organize communications with state lawmakers in key legislative districts.


Showing a strong presence of supporters in the Capitol as they vote on this bill will send an important message that Pennsylvanians back this legislation. We need to press on to meet with our lawmakers.

We know this is short notice, but that is generally how things operate in our state legislature. Please complete this form ASAP. We will then reply with logistics for the day and information on how to contact your legislators. We will work with as many of you as we can to arrange in-person or virtual meetings directly with your lawmakers on Monday or that week while they are in Harrisburg, or at least for you to talk with their legislative assistants.

Movement in the PA House is only the beginning: the next stop is the state Senate. With a strong showing of support while we move through the PA House, the better position we can be in.

You may contact Preston Heldibridle by email here with any questions or ideas.

Please complete this form ASAP so we can immediately start organizing outreach with your state legislators. This form will close on Sunday, April 23th, 2023, at 8:00pm.
