What is Open to All?
Open to All is nationwide public engagement campaign to build understanding and discussion about the importance of our nation’s nondiscrimination laws—and the bedrock principle that when businesses open their doors to the public, they should be Open to All.
Originally, the campaign launched to focus attention on the Masterpiece Cakeshop vs. Colorado Civil Rights Commission case before the U.S. Supreme Court. While the Supreme Court’s decision in that case affirmed the importance of nondiscrimination laws, it did not end the discrimination that so many Americans still face every day based on race, ethnicity, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, religion and/or disability.
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.
