Project 515 Proposes Legislation to Ensure Equality During Times of Illness and Death
Date:1/22/2009

ess and equality. Eight out of 10 Minnesotans believe the government should not treat people differently because of their sexual orientation, the survey reported. Nearly 70 percent believe "gays and lesbians should have the same rights and responsibilities as everyone else."

Yet, a Project 515 study of all Minnesota statutes shows at least 515 current Minnesota laws discriminate against same-sex couples and their families.

"As we've traveled across the state, we've heard Minnesotans from both sides of the political aisle say that fairness and equality under the law are critical," said Laura Smidzik, executive director of Project 515. "Minnesota families need to know that our laws will treat them fairly, especially during times of sadness and mourning. Pursuing revisions to some of the 515 laws that discriminate will help us build stronger families and households in our state."

About Project 515: Project 515 is a Minnesota non-profit organization working to ensure that same-sex couples and their families have equal rights and considerations under Minnesota law. There are at least 515 current state laws that discriminate against same-sex couples and their families. For more information, visit http://www.project515.org.
