The Equality Act- Time is Now

Contact your members of Congress Today!

Hot off the press from the Human Rights Campaign. "The Equality Act (H.R. 5), which would provide clear and consistent non-discrimination protections for LGBTQ people at the federal level, was just reintroduced in Congress with broad support from more than two-thirds of voters, hundreds of members of Congress and an unprecedented 335+ businesses.

By adding sexual orientation and gender identity as protected characteristics to existing civil rights law, this legislation would provide permanent protections under federal law for all Americans in vital areas of life: housing, access to public spaces, credit, education, jury service and federally-funded programs.

That is not all. It would also add sex non-discrimination protections to public spaces and services, as well as federally-funded programs, and modernize the public spaces and services covered in current law to include retail stores, services such as banks and legal services and transportation services. This bill strengthens protections for all people, including women, religious minorities and people of color."
