Arizona ballot measure would use constitution to discriminate
Arizona ballot measure would use constitution to discriminate
"We will continue to stand side-by-side with Arizona Together to defeat this discriminatory amendment in the fall," said Human Rights Campaign President Joe Solmonese.

Human Rights Campaign President Joe Solmonese made the following comment as extremists in Arizona filed a petition to put a discriminatory constitutional amendment on the November ballot that would deny domestic partner benefits to couples in the state and strip cities that already offer these benefits the right to do so.

"The Arizona Constitution should protect citizens, not single out one group for discrimination," said Human Rights Campaign President Joe Solmonese. "Domestic partner benefits are widely supported and this amendment would deny them this right in the very document that was written to protect all Arizonans."

The Human Rights Campaign is a strong supporter of Arizona Together, the coalition to fight the anti-domestic partnership amendment, and will stand side-by-side with them to support their effort through November. The Human Rights Campaign is committed to the coalition and has contributed more than $100,000 to fight this initiative.

The Human Rights Campaign is the largest national Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender political organization with members throughout the country. It effectively lobbies Congress, provides campaign support and educates the public to ensure that LGBT Americans can be open, honest and safe at home, at work and in the community.
