As elections wrap up, one LGBT group has already moved on to the next fight: Missourians for Equality began this week collecting signatures to get non-discrimination protections for LGBT people onto their state’s ballot in 2014. If passed, the initiative would make it illegal to fire someone for being gay, lesbian, bi, or transgender. Currently, only 21 states have protections for LGB employees, and only 16 have such protections in place for transgender workers.
