New anti-discrimination bills expands protections for gay youth and seniors

Three anti-discrimination bills go into effect today providing expanded protections for gay and lesbian youth and seniors with legislation requiring sensitivity training and instruction on the state's anti-harassment laws.

AB 3015 requires administrators and licensed foster parents receive training about state laws that call on schools to be free of harassment and violence.

Senate Bill 1729 requires sensitivity training for senior care facility employees.

Assembly Bill 2654 shores up the state's anti-discrimination statutes by creating consistency across state code in the Unruh Civil Rights Act, which states, “all persons within the jurisdiction of this state are free and equal.”
