End corporate welfare. Improve transportation sustainability.  Gun sense legislation.

DO YOU SUPPORT LEGISLATION THAT WOULD PREVENT BUSINESS OWNERS AND EMPLOYERS FROM DENYING SERVICES TO LGBTQ PEOPLE AND OTHERS BASED ON THEIR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS?

Yes. We need to move away from thinking lgbtq people are different.  Everyone in this society should be treated with equal respect, free from religious bigotry.

Yes. It should end because it's cruel way to keep underprivileged people locked in jail and in debt.
