STOP FLORIDA’S “DON’T SAY GAY OR TRANS” LEGISLATION
On March 31, 2022, NCLR, with our colleagues at Kaplan, Hecker & Fink LLP, filed a new lawsuit challenging Florida’s so-called “Don’t Say Gay or Trans” legislation, which Governor Ron DeSantis signed into law on March 28.
Along with more than a dozen students, parents, and teachers, we represent Equality Florida, which has over 400,000 members, and Family Equality, the nation’s leading group for LGBTQ-parent families and their children.

We will continue to provide updates to the case here. In the meantime, please join us to fight for the young people and LGBTQ families of Florida. Your contributions make lawsuits like this possible. Thank you!
