Statement on WH Pledge to uphold LGBT Protections

The United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC) commends President Trump for vowing to uphold protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people working for federal contractors.

The USHCC has long been a staunch ally of the LGBT community, and is proud to celebrate the great advances made by our brothers and sisters in recent years. We are pleased to see that President Trump is committed to safeguarding those advances, and is fulfilling his campaign promise to protect the rights of all Americans, including the LGBT community.

We acknowledge President Trump for being the first Republican nominee to mention the LGBT community in his nomination acceptance speech, and for pledging then to protect the community from violence and oppression. By vowing to enforce President Obama’s 2014 executive order, President Trump is clearly demonstrating that he takes that campaign pledge seriously.

The USHCC is committed to working with the Administration to ensure that the rights and protections afforded to our friends in the LGBT community continue to be vigorously defended.
