Today’s action: Protect LGBTQ communities from discrimination — pass the Equality Act!

Over 70 countries around the world offer anti-discrimination protections for LGBTQ individuals at a national level. We’ll give you one guess as to who is missing from this list.

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 protects a lot of underrepresented groups from discrimination – based on race, skin color, sex, religion, national origin. However, the landmark legislation does not include sexual orientation or gender identity…and neither does any other federal law, leaving many LGBTQ communities without a shield from the whims of bigots.

Here’s a second “70” fact: it’s the percentage of Americans who support the Equality Act, which would finally provide federal protections for LGBTQ people.

Tell your Members of Congress to co-sponsor the Equality Act of 2019, implementing anti-discrimination laws for LGBTQ individuals at the federal level. If they have already cosponsored (House/Senate), thank them!

30 States have no anti-discrimination laws for sexual orientation or gender identity, containing approximately 50% of LGBTQ Americans. In these states, LGBTQ individuals are subject to harassment, losing their jobs, being denied housing or entering businesses, and more.

And, the threat is very real: two-thirds of LGBTQ Americans report experiencing discrimination in their lifetimes. The Equality Act won’t eliminate all hate crimes and discrimination — but it will certainly prevent some, and provide the LGBTQ community with immediate protections, recourse, and justice against intolerance.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress and demand they co-sponsor and pass the Equality Act of 2019. Tell them federal anti-discrimination laws for LGBTQ individuals are decades overdue. And if they’ve already cosponsored – House/Senate – thank them!
