Don't just talk about Pride. PASS THE EQUALITY ACT NOW! 🏳️🌈🏳️⚧️

I am writing today as your constituent to ask for your support of the Equality Act when it is reintroduced this Congress. Despite a Supreme Court ruling affirming civil rights protections for LGBTQ people in the workplace, LGBTQI+ people still face widespread discrimination in all areas of life. This is why Congress must pass the Equality Act. By explicitly extending civil rights protections to LGBTQI+ people, this bill would provide clear and consistent protections and help ensure that all people are treated fairly under the law, no matter their zip code. The Equality Act would prohibit discrimination in not just employment but also education, housing, public spaces and services, federally funded programs, credit, and jury service. These are all areas where LGBTQI+ Americans routinely face discrimination and abuse. A growing majority of Americans—70 percent—support the Equality Act, as well as more than 500 major companies and 120 religious organizations representing diverse faith traditions from across the country. Last session, the House passed the bill with bipartisan support, but the Senate did not take up the bill. I am asking that you stand with the American people and constituents such as me and support this critical piece of legislation. Every person should be judged on their merits, not their sexual orientation, gender identity, or intersex status. I urge you to co-sponsor the Equality Act and ensure that all Americans can live, work, and go to school free from harassment or discrimination. Thanks.
