WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT
The Equality Act is being heard in the House Judiciary Committee today. Our country cannot continue to tolerate discrimination – in employment, housing, public places, education or anywhere – on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. By explicitly including sexual orientation and gender identity in our nation’s civil rights laws, LGBTQ people will finally be afforded the exact same protections as other covered characteristics under federal law.  Supported by the Human Rights Campaign.
