Rep. Holsman has been a proud co-sponsor of the Missouri Non-Discrimination Act (MONA) every year since taking office in 2006. "Constitutional protections of human rights must be extended to each and every Missourian regardless of sexual orientation. We are not going to sit idly by and watch another generation of our citizens be persecuted in Missouri schools or discriminated against in the workplace. We will not be silenced and we will not be pacified, until all of our citizens are treated equally under the law."
Don't Say Gay Legislation
Rep. Holsman has spoken passionately against recent attempts to outlaw gay-straight alliances in Missouri schools in the 'Don't Say Gay Bill' "All across our nation school children are being bullied and victimized for simply being who they are. HB2051 would have undermined the progress that our nation and state have made in this area. As a former high school teacher, it is extremely inappropriate to politicize an issue that has led to so many suicides across our country."
