- Voted YES on prohibiting wage discrimination based on gender identity
Voted YES on requiring health insurance providers to provide coverage for in-vitro fertilization for same-sex couples
- Sponsored law prohibiting discrimination in public accommodations, housing, and employment based on gender identity
Committed to fighting for marriage equality & LGBTQ rights
A lot of people know me as the person who brought marriage equality to Maryland. And I am very proud of that reputation. I stood up for the civil rights of the people of our state. These rights take many forms, and impact people in many ways.
In the General Assembly, and out, I have delivered on civil rights for the people of Maryland. But I am not finished. I will never be finished. I will cede no ground on civil rights, LGBTQ rights, workers' rights, or women's rights.
