While you're shopping...
... please keep the following in mind:
A record 138 companies scored 100 percent on this year’s Buying for Equality Human Rights Campaign report (up from 101 companies that earned a perfect score last year). By chosing carefully where you shop (and what brands you purchase), you can make a statement and support companies that actively promote equal rights for all.
Believe it or not, it is legal in 33 states to fire someone for being gay, and it is legal in 43 states to fire someone for being transgender. However, thanks to committment from these 138 companies (I know it doesn't sound like a lot, but many are parent companies that are wide-reaching), from enhanced domestic partner benefits to transgender inclusion in non-discrimination policies, we are seeing a revolution in the American workplace every day.
