  As the LGBT Caucus has shown since 2013 (i.e. passing the transgender birth certificate law, banning conversion therapy & our 2019 Legislative Bills we will be supporting.) we all still so have so much more left to do to ensure justice and equality is a reality for everyone. So we hope that you will think about making a donation to the LGBT Caucus so that we have the resources for the battles ahead.
