From the moment Americans reach the age in which they are able to obtain legal employment and become a legal adult in the United States of America, race, gender, and gender identity (in relation to sexual orientation) become an issue while filling out applications for careers, housing, lines of credit, banking, etc. 

    Under several institutions that govern the human rights of American citizens, checking a box to indicate our race, sex, and how we identify in regards to sexual orientation while applying for important aspects of life.  Checking those boxes are not necessary to obtain a job, credit, housing, or open a bank account.

    The American people recognize that racial and sexual bias exists among private and state employers, institutions, and corporations.  Checking a box on these characteristics allows those viewing the applications for the most important landmarks in our lives to exercise a right to judge us before knowing who we are regardless of race, gender, and sexual orientation.  

    We are urging lawmakers that there be legislation passed throughout the country that calls to private, state, and federal employers, banks, credit card companies, housing agencies, etc. to remove classification information from their application processes to protect our human right to not be discriminated against.

    The 14th Amendment equally protects people from being discriminated against, and the act of allowing these companies, agencies, and institutions to continue to ask questions construed as "citizen profiling" in determining important aspects of a person's life to be REMOVED from all applications of consideration of personal, commercial, and industrial applications.  

    We need your help to change the discrimination against everyone that has ever filled out an application for anything in the United States of America.  Please sign and enforce this petition with your local government to make sure legislation is passed to protect everyone from being profiled by prospective employers, prospective landlords, etc.
