KM&A Obtains over 1,000 Petition Signatures at Pridefest 2014
On Sunday, June 15, Kraemer, Manes & Associates collected 1,173 signatures on their petition to End LGBT Employment Discrimination. The petition will be sent to the PA Congressional Delegation in support of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), the passage of which would create LGBT protections on the federal level. The petition is also being sent to Governor Corbett and the PA General Assembly in support of adding LGBT protections to the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act (PHRA).
Pennsylvania is the only state in the Northeast that doesn’t protect its LGBT employees, even from blatant discrimination. Specific protections are necessary to protect the LGBT community from discrimination based on orientation in the workplace. At Pridefest, 1,173 people agreed that specific protections for the LGBT community should be put in place in Pennsylvania. KM&A is grateful for this huge showing of support from the greater Pittsburgh area and LGBT community.
