CFI, 22 Other Groups Urge Obama to Ban Anti-LGBT Discrimination by Federal Contractors

The Center for Inquiry (CFI) today joined 22 faith and humanist groups in urging President Barack Obama to issue an executive order banning discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) employees of federal contractors. 

You might recall that Obama pledged to issue an executive order prohibiting anti-LGBT discrimination among federal contractors while on the campaign trail in 2008.  Unfortunately, several few weeks ago, Obama announced that he would not issue that executive order after all. Our letter is a direct response to this disappointing move. We hope the White House will reverse course on this vital issue and protect LGBT Americans and their families from discrimination.
