Abbe Land, the Executive Director and CEO of The Trevor Project, shared her disappointment about the passage of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act in Indiana last week.
“We are extremely disappointed by Indiana Governor Mike Pence’s support for the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Still today, despite our progress, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) people face discrimination on a daily basis, in every state. Youth in particular are especially vulnerable to the repercussions of messages of hate, injustice and intolerance. Passage of this law exacerbates an already unfortunate situation. The Trevor Project stands beside and thanks the many groups who are speaking out against this law. There is power in our outrage and we need to continue to speak out.”
