What is Open to All?

Open to All is nationwide public engagement campaign to build understanding and discussion about the importance of protecting people from discrimination—and the bedrock principle that when businesses open their doors to the public, they should be Open to All.

As Americans go about their daily lives, from going to the gym to hanging out with friends, we shouldn’t have to worry about whether we will be welcome, or whether we will face hostility or even be denied service—like the couple recently kicked out of an Uber simply because they’re gay, Muslim women who were ordered to leave a café, people of color facing abuse and violence in a diner, or people with disabilities being harassed in a restaurant.

Who are the Open to All coalition members?

The Open to All campaign is supported by a wide array of more than 200 civil rights and racial justice organizations; lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) organizations and community centers; health advocates, disability advocates and faith organizations; and other groups.

Together, the more than 200 members of the Open to All coalition are working to defend the bedrock principle that when a business opens its doors to the public, it should be Open to All.

The Open to All campaign was developed by and is a project of the Movement Advancement Project, an independent think tank that provides rigorous research, insight and analysis that help speed equality and opportunity for all.
