Equality Act

The Equality Act needs 60 votes in the Senate to become law - and we need your help to pass these landmark civil rights protections for all LGBT Americans!

Together we can make history and finally pass a bill that provides federal non-discrimination protections for LGBTQ+ people in all aspects of life, including housing, credit, education, federally funded programs, public spaces, and jury service. With the Equality Act, we will ensure there's explicit legal protections for LGBTQ people in all 50 states and expand protections on the basis of gender in public spaces.

Under current law, LGBTQ+ people are at risk of being refused housing or denied services simply because of who they are in 29 states across the country. Only 21 states have explicit legal protections for transgender people. If an LGBTQ+ person was to drive from Maine to California, their rights would literally change dozens of times. This is unacceptable. It’s time to make history.
