In 2022, 27 states have no nondiscrimination protections for LGBTQ+ people. 28 states have introduced anti-LGBTQ+ bills. Eight states have signed anti-LGBTQ+ bills into law.
With more than 300 hateful, discriminatory bills introduced in the states just this year, it’s crystal clear that federal protections for the community are urgent and necessary to combat state-level violence.
We are calling for federal protections for all LGBTQ+ people in housing, health care, education, and public accommodations across the country by passing the Equality Act.
The dangerous far-right majority on the Supreme Court coupled with bigoted Republicans in state legislatures poses a real threat to the safety and rights of the LGBTQ+ community.
The Equality Act would provide comprehensive protections on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity nationwide, essentially carving out LGBTQ+ protections into existing civil rights law.
The House of Representatives have already passed the Equality Act, but now it’s stuck in the Senate. We’re now demanding that our senators live up to our country’s promises of equality and fair treatment and pass federal LGBTQ+ protections.
Send a message to your senators to ensure that those who seek to freely love who they love and be who they want to be are not subject to violence and discrimination.
