LGBTQ Issues

Equality Act
Nondiscrimination

Everyone should be treated equally!

We support the Equality Act.

Checked box
Discrimination against LGBTQ people violates the core American values of equality and fairness.
Checked box
Most states do not have non-discrimination policies that include sexual orientation and gender identity.
Checked box
The Equality Act (H.R. 5) passed by the House would amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and other federal laws to give LGBTQ people consistent and explicit protection from discrimination.
Checked box
LGBTQ youth are more likely than their peers to experience bullying and harassment, and to attempt suicide.
Checked box
We need the Equality Act because today’s patchwork of laws leaves LGBTQ people vulnerable to discrimination in their daily lives, and sends the message they are second-class citizens.
