Not Visited Due to LGBT Discrimination: California Includes 17 States 'Banned'
California has expanded the list of states that employees should not visit due to laws that discriminate against the LGBT community. Writes about it "Voice of America".
California Attorney General Rob Bonta announced the addition of new states to the list.
Bonta listed Florida, Arkansas, Montana, North Dakota, and West Virginia. Now there are 17 states. You can visit them only in case of emergency.
“Rest assured, we are in the midst of an unprecedented wave of intolerance and discrimination in our country, and the state of California is not going to support this,” Bonta said.
In 2016, California lawmakers banned non-essential travel to states with laws that discriminate against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people.
