LGBTQ folks in America remain vulnerable to being evicted from their homes, kicked out of a business that’s open to the public, denied health care, or denied government services in a majority of states simply because of who they are.   

Actions, LGBTQ, Racial Justice, Women

The Equality Act has just passed through the House and now it’s on to the Senate for a vote before it can become law!

The America that we, Millennials and Gen Z, believe in is a land of opportunity and freedom—where people who work hard should have the chance to get ahead. That’s why the Equality Act is so important. Updating our non-discrimination law helps ensure that all Americans, including LGBTQ Americans, can provide for themselves and their families, meet their obligations, live free from discrimination, and build a better life.

Twenty-nine states do not currently have laws that explicitly protect LGBTQ people from discrimination. Without the Equality Act, LGBTQ folks in America remain vulnerable to being evicted from their homes, kicked out of a business that’s open to the public, denied health care, or denied government services in a majority of states simply because of who they are.   

We’re over this awful game of whack-a-mole against bad rules, court positions, and legislation, so it’s past time for comprehensive protections. It’s time for Congress to pass the Equality Act. 

This bill applies legal equality to literally all areas of civil rights. It would: 

  • amend our nation’s civil rights laws and
  • provide LGBTQ people and their families clear, consistent protections nationwide—including in employment, housing, credit, education, public spaces, and services, federally funded programs, and jury service.

Join us in demanding the Senate pass the Equality Act!
