Seriously?

Yes. Seriously.

Hope…


Today’s Action: Tell the Senate to pass the Equality Act!

Only 20 states have full anti-discrimination laws for LGBTQ+ people…leaving those in the other 30 states completely vulnerable to attack without protections.

In most states, home to about 50% of LGBTQ+ Americans, people can still be denied housing or lodging, or even kicked out of their home for even the perception that they are gay or transgender.

Nearly two-thirds of LGBTQ+ youth have experienced discrimination at school, and the results are heartbreaking; they are much more likely to miss class, have lower grades, and struggle with self-esteem, a sense of belonging, and depression. And LGBTQ+ educators, in the same unprotected environments, can be fired just for being who they are.

We need the Equality Act.

The Equality Act has passed the House and now moves onto the Senate, where it faces an uphill battle to secure the 60 votes needed to bypass the Jim Crow filibuster. Call or email your Senators and demand: 1) they support and pass the Equality Act, and 2) if they can’t reach 60 votes, they must repeal the Jim Crow filibuster…and then pass the Equality Act.

The Equality Act  will include sexual orientation and gender identity as protected characteristics under civil rights law – finally legally protecting LGBTQ+ people nationwide from discrimination.

The Democratic-led House passed the Equality Act in 2019, but it collected dust in the GOP-controlled Senate. With Democrats now in power, we must move with urgency – because every day that we delay, our LGBTQ+ communities continue to face hostile living and work environments.

For far too long, our country has denied basic protections to LGBTQ+ people. Let’s end this NOW by passing the Equality Act.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Senators and demand they pass the Equality Act, to provide essential civil rights protections to all LGBTQ+ people. Tell Democrats: if they can’t reach 60 votes, they must abolish the filibuster to secure these important protections!

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition demanding an investigation into Rep. Madison Cawthorn’s history of sexual misconduct, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
