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

The House has passed the Equality Act, which now moves to the Senate for approval. And we need the Senate to pass it. Because, while over 70 countries around the world offer anti-discrimination protections for LGBTQ+ individuals at a national level, the United States is not one of them. With Trump continuing his campaign for “religious freedom” AKA the freedom to discriminate, the LGBTQ+ community deserves protection fast.

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 protects a lot of underrepresented groups from discrimination – based on race, skin color, sex, religion, and national origin. However, the landmark legislation does not include sexual orientation or gender identity, 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.

The Senate will need a huge push to get it on the floor for a vote. Tell your Senators to support the Equality Act of 2019 and demand a vote, implementing anti-discrimination laws for LGBTQ+ individuals at the federal level. If they have already cosponsored, thank them!

30 States have no anti-discrimination laws for sexual orientation or gender identity, home to 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 Senators and demand they co-sponsor and pass the Equality Act of 2019. Tell them federal anti-discrimination laws for LGBTQ+ individuals are decades overdue. If they have already cosponsored, thank them!
