About Pennsylvania Values

Pennsylvanians united in ensuring dignity, equality, and freedom for all

Here in Pennsylvania, we believe that everyone deserves the same opportunities to work, live, and thrive in their community. When LGBT Pennsylvanians are protected from discrimination and treated just like everyone else, the entire commonwealth wins.

This effort is coordinating community-based organizing to urge the General Assembly to enact comprehensive LGBT-inclusive nondiscrimination protections. This legislation will update the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act of 1955 to add sexual orientation and gender identity or expression, to be included along with the 11 existing protected classes.

There are more than half a million LGBT Pennsylvanians who each deserve to be treated with dignity and respect in their lives. The Pennsylvania Values campaign brings together Pennsylvanians of diverse backgrounds and political perspectives to advocate for a statewide nondiscrimination law that protects LGBT people. The Pennsylvania Values campaign has been created by the Pennsylvania Youth Congress.

This effort is bringing partners together throughout the commonwealth to ensure comprehensive LGBT-inclusive nondiscrimination protections become law. Nonprofit and advocacy organizations that work on the front lines of making Pennsylvania a better place to live and work are proud to join our campaign to ensure basic protections for our LGBT neighbors, family and friends.
