New York Times Puts Spotlight on Project One America

April 28, 2014 by Carolyn Simon, Deputy Director of Digital Media

An article in Sunday’s New York Times shined a spotlight on HRC’s Project One America, a newly launched campaign to dramatically expand LGBT equality in the South.

The article, “Gay Rights Push Shifts Its Focus South and West,” details HRC’s plans to bring equality to states like Mississippi, Alabama and Arkansas, where there are no non-discrimination protections for LGBT people at the state or local level in employment, housing or public accommodations, and where each state’s constitution expressly prohibits marriage equality.
