Subject: I Support The Equality Act
I am writing to ask for your support for The Equality Act (H.R. 2282). The Equality Act would provide consistent and explicit anti-discrimination protections for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) people across key areas of life, including employment, housing, credit, education, public accommodations, federally funded programs and jury service.
Despite significant steps forward, LGBTQ Americans lack basic legal protections in states across the country. Current laws leaves millions of people subject to uncertainty and potential discrimination that impacts their safety, their family, and their very way of life. Data shows that 70% of Americans are in support of such laws.
Everyone should have a fair chance to earn a living and provide a home for their families without fear of harassment or discrimination.
For these reasons and so many more, I am urging you to support The Equality Act so our LGBTQ neighbors, friends, family and coworkers can live free from discrimination.
