NGLCC Renamed “National LGBT Chamber of Commerce”, Reaffirms Mission as Business Voice of the LGBT Community
NGLCC Condemns Trump Administration Anti-LGBT “License to Discriminate” Directives as Destructive to the American Economy and its Citizens
Oct 6, 2017
Washington, DC – The National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC), the business voice of the LGBT community, vehemently opposes the recent positions taken by the Trump Administration declaring that government agencies, private businesses, and other entities have a right to discriminate against LGBT people. Such a directive is not just a state-sanctioned and taxpayer-funded attack on LGBT Americans, but also on women’s access to healthcare, individuals with disabilities, and other vulnerable communities.
