Taking The First Steps Toward Expanding Discrimination Protections For LGBTQ Kansans
How the Kansas Human Rights Commission is expanding LGBTQ protections that up to now only covered workers.

More recently, the Kansas Human Rights Commission has announced it will accept cases that could extend those discrimination protections to cover housing and public accommodations.
