Today’s Action: Pass the Equality Act for Pride Month!

June is Pride Month, the time we pay tribute to those involved in the Stonewall riots of 1969, celebrate our LGBTQ+ communities, and spotlight the ongoing fight for true equality.

Waves of transphobic and homophobic legislation have been advancing through GOP-controlled state legislatures throughout the country, while the Equality Act is unsurprisingly stuck in the muck that is the US Senate. 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. The best way to show support this Pride Month is demanding our senators pass the Equality Act immediately, and finally deliver basic protections to LGBTQ+ people.

Call (202.224.3121) or email your senators and tell them to join 72% of Americans in supporting H.R. 5, the Equality Act this Pride Month!

Anti-LGBTQ+ bills ramrodded through state legislatures go against best practices defined by leading medical professionals and wage war on already marginalized, vulnerable youth. Hundreds of bigoted, anti-LGBTQ+ bills have made the rounds in state legislatures this year alone. In Idaho, lawmakers threatened to jail librarians who “let” minors check out “harmful” materials (the only content mentioned was LGBTQ+, of course.) Legislation that the Human Rights Campaign called “the most anti-transgender legislative package ever passed” made it all the way to the desk of Alabama Governor Kay Ivey for signature this year. We cannot allow our elected officials to continue normalizing oppression and legalizing hate.

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. 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. Enough is enough.

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