Georgia Equality Pushes Again for Statewide Civil Rights Nondiscrimination Act – WABE

Jeff Graham, CEO of Georgia Equality, has been fighting for the rights of people in the LGBTQ+ community since the mid-1980s.

“I can look in the rearview mirror and see how far we’ve come,” Graham said on Wednesday’s Closer Look.

Graham went on to explain that one of the key changes over the years is that many families are now relatively more supportive of their LGBTQ+ family members.

During the call, Graham also discussed Georgia Equality’s top priorities for the 2023 legislative session.

“Our ultimate goal is to pass a statewide civil rights law on non-discrimination,” Graham said. “Georgia is one of three states that do not have one on the books protecting any community.”
