Congress: Pass The Equality Act

Update 5/19/19: Thanks to activists like you, the Equality Act passed the House. Now we're taking this fight to the Senate. Keep up the pressure and send a message to your senators now.


Today, LGBTQ people still lack explicit and comprehensive nondiscrimination protections. And the harsh reality is that discrimination and harassment remains a persistent problem in key areas of everyday life – especially for transgender people.

But the Equality Act would explicitly prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. It would be the first law to ensure LGBTQ people are covered by consistent, explicit, and nationwide nondiscrimination protections in employment, housing, access to public spaces and services, and other critical areas of daily life. The House passed the Equality Act, so now it's incumbent on the Senate to finish this work. Send a message to your senators now.

Your Message
Vote YES on H.R. 5, the Equality Act

As your constituent, I urge you to support the Equality Act (H.R. 5), which would finally provide explicit and comprehensive nondiscrimination protections for LGBTQ people - protections that are urgently needed.

All of us should be able to fully participate in public life, and not be judged based on characteristics like our sexual orientation or gender identity. Everyone deserves a fair chance to support themselves, provide for their family, and live as their true selves free from the fear of harassment or discrimination. Please vote yes on H.R. 5, the Equality Act.

Sincerely,

[First Name] [Last Name]
