Tzedek has joined Open to All, a growing coalition of more than 200 non-profits, from the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights and the Anti-Defamation League to disability groups, LGBTQ groups, faith organizations, and more. This collective effort is designed to push back on a growing legal tactic used by small businesses like bakeries, social service organizations like adoption agencies, and human services nonprofits like shelters, who justify discrimination against LGBTQ people using “religious freedom.”
Open to All is a campaign to transform America. At a time of deep divisions, we’re joining together from all walks of life and work to build a thriving and inclusive nation where all are welcome. We know that building a stronger country means everyone should feel safe, respected and accepted as they live, shop, and work.
Open to All is a national nondiscrimination campaign based around the idea that everyone should be welcome regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, immigration status, religion or disability. We believe we all have something to contribute. We believe we can all learn from each other. We believe that when we work together, when we value our employees, when we care for our customers and each other, we all thrive.
