The Mayors Against LGBT Discrimination Coalition

Mayors Against LGBT Discrimination is a bipartisan coalition of municipal leaders dedicated to securing inclusive nondiscrimination protections for all, including lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals, at all levels of government. We recognize the special role mayors play in protecting the rights and safety of residents and in advancing policies that move our communities and our country forward. See all of the 307 coalition members from 48 states and the District of Columbia who have joined the Mayors Against LGBT Discrimination coalition.
