Currently in the state of Mississippi, there is no state law which explicitly protects individuals from discrimination in housing, employment, and or the use public accommodations. We support HB624 & SB2738 because it prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, national origin, disability, gender identity, and sexual orientation. All people are created equal and deserve to be treated as equals under the law. This legislation provides that protection that all Mississippians deserve.
