Today’s Action: Pass the Equality Act and deliver real LGBTQ+ federal protections!

An incessant wave of transphobic and homophobic legislation has advanced through GOP-controlled state legislatures throughout the country in recent years. Conservatives emboldened by Donald Trump’s normalization of brazen discrimination are waging relentless war on LGBTQ+ communities, attempting to undo decades of hard-fought progress.

Anti-LGBTQ+ bills ramrodded through state legislatures go against best practices defined by leading medical professionals and wage war on already marginalized, vulnerable youth. At least 238 bigoted bills have made the rounds in state legislatures this year alone. In Idaho, lawmakers even threatened to jail librarians who “let” minors check out “harmful” materials (the only content mentioned was LGBTQ+, of course.)

This draconian legislation is not just simply designed to deny basic protections to LGBTQ+ people, it is openly encouraging power-hungry GOP ringleaders to wage war on their very existence. Enough is enough.

Call (202.224.3121) or email your senators and tell them to join 72% of Americans in supporting H.R. 5, the Equality Act! If they’ve already co-sponsored the bill, thank them — and urge them to stop at nothing to pass it!

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey recently signed into law what advocates at the Human Rights Campaign are calling “the most anti-transgender legislative package ever passed.” That’s right, in the year 2022, Alabama became the first state to criminally penalize medical professionals for providing life-saving, gender-affirming care. We cannot allow our elected officials to normalize and legalize oppression and hate.

Every day that we delay, our LGBTQ+ communities will continue to face hostile living and work environments without proper legal recourse. Conservatives have been scapegoating and persecuting the oppressed for centuries under the guise of religious freedom. The ability to persecute others is not something that makes America “free.” What is important is the ability for all, regardless of identity, to live an equitable life. We clearly have a long way to go to fulfill that promise.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your senators and demand they pass the Equality Act!
