Last year, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Equality Act with strong bipartisan support. This critical legislation would amend our nation’s civil rights laws and provide LGBTQ people and their families clear, consistent protections nationwide in employment, housing, credit, education, public spaces and services, federally funded programs, and jury service. Discrimination is a serious problem that affects LGBTQ people, their families, and communities.
The need is urgent. The support is strong. It’s time for Congress to finally pass the Equality Act.
