Further Policy Priorities

Candidates who sign on to the Equality Arizona Policy Platform above do not necessarily endorse the following policies, but we invite you to consider the following policies of significance to Arizona’s LGBTQ+ communities, particularly to those who are most marginalized, who may rely on income from sex work, or who are unhoused.

  1. Decriminalization of sex work
  2. Decriminalization of homelessness
  3. Opposition to the EARN IT act, and the repeal of SESTA/FOSTA
  4. Data privacy laws to allow people to opt-out of disclosing gender and sexuality
  5. Removal of the gender requirement from the Real ID act, and the removal of gender markers from state-issued identity documents
