Congress: Pass The Equality Act

The Supreme Court has handed down a tremendous decision: Under current federal law, LGTBQ people cannot be fired from their job just because of sexual orientation or gender identity. This ruling is historic, but there are still critical gaps that must be addressed.

We must do more. It's more important than ever that LGBTQ people have comprehensive, nationwide protection against discrimination. The Senate must follow the House of Representatives in finally passing the Equality Act – and build upon the momentum of the Supreme Court's ruling.

Your Message
Pass the Equality Act (H.R. 5)

As your constituent, I urge you to support Senate passage of the Equality Act (H.R. 5), which would finally provide explicit and comprehensive nationwide nondiscrimination protections for LGBTQ people – protections that are urgently needed as we build upon the historic Supreme Court ruling that protects people from discrimination for being LGBTQ in the workplace.

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 support the Senate's passage of the Equality Act (H.R. 5).

Sincerely,

[First Name] [Last Name]
