Nondiscrimination

Did you know you can be fired for being gay in Missouri?

In the state of Missouri, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people can be fired from their jobs, evicted from their homes, and denied access to public accommodations and services.

If you have been the target of discrimination, you can
File a Report with the Missouri Attorney General.

PROMO is working tirelessly with elected officials and community members to pass the Missouri Nondiscrimination Act (MONA), which would prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity in employment, housing, and public accommodations. MONA would simply extend the existing Missouri Human Rights Statute to include lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT), and allied people.

The current law prohibits discrimination based on race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, sex, age as it relates to employment, disability, and familial status as it relates to housing. This legislation would add to the list a prohibition against discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

This is not an issue that is won in a single year, but a multi-year strategy of working at the local level, while systematically achieving benchmark progress year over year in the legislature.
