Philly Hearing Tomorrow on HB1400!

Tomorrow the State Government Committee will be holding their third hearing on House Bill 1400 – legislation to protect LGBT people against discrimination in housing, employment, and public accomodations – in Philadelphia! Hearings were held in early October in both Pittsburgh and Erie and were an amazing success. At tomorrow’s hearing we’ll hear testimony from the ACLU of Pennsylvania, the Faith Coalition for Pennsylvania Families, the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce, the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission, and others about the importance of passing this important piece of legislation.

If you’re in the southeastern part of the state, please come by to show your support! The hearing is from 1:00 – 4:00 pm at the Friends Center at 1501 Cherry Street.

However, if you’re unable to make the hearing in-person, you’re in luck! We will be LIVE-BLOGGING (!!!) the entire hearing right here. This is our/my first attempt at live-blogging, so I’m hoping everyone will check-in for updated information on what’s happening.

Until tomorrow!
