Ken Mehlman was recently featured in the Advocate for his work on Project Right Side, a new non-profit that, through research and analysis, ” identifies the intersections between conservative beliefs and the growing public support for gay and lesbian civil rights measures, including marriage equality, employment nondiscrimination protections, and antibullying laws.”
Project Right Side is unique in the fact that it is focused on research and analysis, and how it has provided important data about how supportive Republicans in general are of legal protection for gay Americans.
“Of the 7,000 Republicans we surveyed, 73% support employment nondiscrimination protections for gays and lesbians,” Ken Mehlman explained. “61% support safe-schools protections (such as those signed into law by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie) and 46% support allowing same-sex couples to jointly file tax returns.”
