During and following California’s Proposition 8 campaign, the LDS Church declared it is not “anti-gay” and “does not object to rights for same-sex couples regarding hospitalization and medical care, fair housing and employment rights, or probate rights.” On November 5th, Elder L. Whitney Clayton stated the LDS Church does not oppose “civil unions or domestic partnerships.” In response to these statements, Equality Utah has launched its Common Ground Initiative, which consists of 6 bills being introduced in the 2009 General Session of the Utah Legislature. The 6 bills are:
1. Expanding Health Care
2. Fair Employment
3. Fair Housing
4. Wrongful Deaths
5. Domestic Partner Rights and Responsibilities Act
6. Clarifying Amendment 3
Be part of our work for a fair & just Utah and help us secure these rights. Join our Common Ground Initiative by signing this petition of support today!
