      What The Election Means for the LGBTQ Community

      Hans Johnson leads nonprofit advocacy at the local, state, and national levels. In 2014, after building a diverse base of outspoken leaders throughout California, he won a multi-year campaign to pass the nation's first statewide ban on polluting, single-use plastic bags. For 25 years, he has integrated and meshed community-based and nationally supported campaigns, working closely with foundations, clergy, and interfaith, labor, LGBT, immigrant, civil-rights, reproductive justice, and environmental organizations, and socially responsible business for victories on ballot measures in more than half the states.

      With increasing frequency, we are seeing individuals and institutions claiming a right to discriminate—by refusing to provide services to LGBT people and women—based on religious objections. The discrimination takes many forms, including the following:

      • Religiously affiliated schools firing women because they became pregnant while not married
      • Business owners refusing to provide insurance coverage for contraception for their employees
      • Graduate students, training to be social workers, refusing to counsel gay people
      • Pharmacies turning away women seeking to fill birth control prescriptions

      How do we think this will change in January 2021? Join us on Zoom to hear what Hans is expecting following the monumental 2020 election. Email the chapter at mail@au-oc.org or sign up on Meetup
