St. Louis (KSDK) -- Less than a week after the 2012 General Election, a group of Missourians is already taking steps to ensure nondiscriminational proposals will appear on the 2014 ballot.

Missourians for Equality, a nonpartisan political action committee, requested approval to circulate their petition to add sexual orientation and gender identity to Missouri's nondiscrimination policy.

The proposal, filed with the Secretary of State's office on November 7, also seeks to protect religious freedoms, stating that any religious institution or member of a religious institution is not required to act in a way that violates their sincerely held religious beliefs.

Secretary of State Robin Carnahan and Attorney General Chris Koster must approve the proposal form before the registered Missouri voters can sign the petition.

For more information regarding the campaign, contact Kelsey Smith at 660-234-4567 or info@MOforEquality.org
