The local government in Campania - a region in Italy which includes Naples - was about to end without passing a law against violence and discrimination towards LGBT+ people, even though it had been openly promised by the Governor.
Our partners in Campania had been working tirelessly and couldn’t accept to wait for another 5 years, when the next session would conclude. That’s why they started mobilizing to make sure the law was passed before the legislative session ended.
As part of their mobilization, they started a petition on All Out’s new petition platform calling on the Regional Council to immediately pass the anti-discrimination law.
All Out members jumped into action and, in just a few days, petition starters were able to deliver over 2,400 signatures the day the law was scheduled to be debated.
And it worked! All but one councillor voted for the law.
