Equality California urges CPUC to approve 1.5% Utilization Goal for LGBT owned/certified businesses



BuildOUT California is deeply gratified by the letter submitted by the leadership of Equality California, the nation’s largest statewide LGBTQ+ civil rights organization, to the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) in support of the Proposed Decision for a 1.5% LGBT utilization procurement goal by California-based utilities.

With over 900,000 members, Equality California brings the voices of LGBTQ+ people and allies to institutions of power in California and across the United States, striving to create a world that is healthy, just, and fully equal for all LGBTQ+ people. In their letter to CPUC Commission President, the Honorable Alice Reynolds, Equality California Executive Director Tony Hoang writes:

“Most importantly, the LGBTBE procurement goal reaches 1.5%, which puts LGBTQ+ businesses on equal footing with others in the program.”
