HOW TO LOBBY FOR THE EQUALITY ACT
Equality for LGBTQ+ people is about basic human values and needs: the ability of everyday Americans to pursue health and happiness, earn a living, be safe in their communities, serve their country, and take care of the ones they love.
The Equality Act would provide national, consistent non-discrimination protections for LGBTQ+ people in all aspects of life including housing, credit, education, federally funded programs, public spaces, and jury service. It would amend current civil rights laws to explicitly prohibit discrimination against the LGBTQ+ community and strengthen non-discrimination protections for women and other minorities.
