The overwhelming majority of Americans agree: Everyone deserves to live free from discrimination. Unfortunately, millions of LGBTQI+ people reside in states that fail to provide them with critical legal nondiscrimination protections and that have passed an onslaught of discriminatory anti-LGBTQI+ bills. A 2022 nationally representative survey by the Center for American Progress revealed that more than 1 in 3 LGBTQI+ adults faced discrimination of some kind in the past year, including nearly half LGBTQI+ people of color and more than half of transgender individuals.
That's why we need the Equality Act. This landmark piece of legislation would strengthen and expand federal civil rights laws to ensure clear, consistent, and comprehensive nondiscrimination protections for LGBTQI+ people in all states. Share your support for this landmark legislation!
