ActionLink received exciting news this week! As you know, the Equality Act passed in the U.S. House of Representatives recently. Next it will be heard in the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, March 17 at 10 AM ET.
Did you know that over 50% of LGBTQ+ Americans live in states where there are not full nondiscrimination protections? The Equality Act would ensure that all LGBTQ+ Americans can live, work, and access public spaces free from discrimination, no matter what state they call home.
We know lawmakers have been hearing misinformation from opponents of LGBTQ+ equality, including unfounded claims that passing the Equality Act would infringe on religious liberty, and mean-spirited attacks on transgender youth who participate on school sports teams.
That's why I'm asking you to email or call your Senators before Wednesday's hearing to let them know that the Senate must support full equality for ALL Americans.
P.S. You can also support the Equality Act by signing up to join a volunteer phone bank from the comfort of your own home at www.EqualityTime.org/phone.
