" Mayor Edwin M. Lee today issued the following statement after Indiana Governor Mike Pence signed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act into law that legalizes discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals:
“We stand united as San Franciscans to condemn Indiana’s new
discriminatory law, and will work together to protect the civil rights
of all Americans including lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender
Effective immediately, I am directing City Departments under my
authority to bar any publicly-funded City employee travel to the State
of Indiana that is not absolutely essential to public health and safety.
San Francisco taxpayers will not subsidize legally-sanctioned
discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people by
the State of Indiana.” " March 26, 2015.
