On April 7th, 2015, Springfield, Missouri, voters repealed non-discrimination protections from individuals based on sexual orientation and gender identity by a narrow margin. This has left members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community vulnerable to discriminatory hiring/firing, denial of housing and refusal of service.
In response, we began a campaign of positive action to identify and promote LGBT-friendly local businesses in Springfield, MO through an online directory and window decals.
Know that the business or organization proudly displaying the “We Are Inclusive” sticker provides ALL services and public accommodations to ALL qualified patrons, and practices non-discriminatory employment.
If you live up to these standards and would like to display a sticker and/or be listed on the directory, please register here. In doing so, you will show your support for the local LGBT community and your business will also be added to a statewide list of businesses housed through PROMO at www.MoWorkplaceEquality.com.
