07 Jan TECH FOR EQUALITY STATEMENT ON SENATE BILL 344
Tech for Equality is a coalition of companies and leaders in the tech community who support local human rights ordinances and updating our state’s civil rights laws to include sexual orientation and gender identity.
The group is co-chaired by Bill Oesterle and Mark Hill. Bill Oesterle is a co-founder of Angie’s List and founder of the Governor Bob Orr Entrepreneurial Fellowship. Mark Hill is a co-founder of Baker Hill and Collina Ventures.
“Senate Bill 344 sends the message that only a portion of the LGBT community is welcome in Indiana,” said Mark Hill, Tech for Equality Co-Chair. “This legislation does not reflect the values of fairness and hospitality that the Hoosier state was known for prior to the RFRA debacle and will certainly not help rebuild our reputation. While it is a flawed bill, Senate Bill 100 represents a stronger effort to protect LGBT Hoosiers from legal discrimination.”
