Urge your Congressperson to Support the Equality Act to Protect the LGBTQ Community

To: Members of U.S. Congress 

Although the LGBTQ movement has come a long way in recent history, the community still lacks basic legal protections, making its members vulnerable to discrimination and hate. I urge you to support the Equality Act -- a comprehensive bill that would cover employment, housing, credit, education, public spaces and services, federally funded programs, and jury service.

This bill ensures that every LGBTQ person can live their lives free from the fear of discrimination, and uphold the most important American principal that all men are created equal.

    It is time for Congress to extend all legal protections from discrimination to the LGBTQ community. 

    The LGBTQ equality movement has come a long way over the last ten years, but we are still far from acquiring the full scope of legal protections afforded to other vulnerable classes of individuals. Our nation’s civil rights laws protect people on the basis of race, color, national origin, and in most cases, sex, disability, and religion. However our current federal law does not provide the same protections based on sexual orientation or gender identity, and we believe its time for that to change. 

    The Equality Act ensures that every person will be afforded equal protection under the law by making it illegal discriminate on the basis of LGBTQ identity.
