Non-discrimination regulations will make Virginia a better place
  • I am a voter living in Virginia.
  • All children deserve a loving, forever family. Currently, there are more than 1,000 children waiting to be adopted in Virginia.
  • Decisions about prospective parents should be based on the best interest of the child, not on discriminatory factors unrelated to good parenting.
  • When agencies act in the stead of the state, they should be bound by principals of non-discrimination even if they are private agencies.

Adoption agencies should no longer be able to discriminate based upon gender, age, religion, political beliefs, sexual orientation, disability, or family status.
