Contact Your Senators

Urge the Senate to swiftly pass the Equality Act  to provide civil rights protections for all LGBTQ+ people.

Seven years after marriage equality became a reality nationwide, over half of U.S. states could still deny LGBTQ+ Americans basic freedoms like the right to rent a home or the ability to receive public goods and services simply because of who they love or who they are. The Equality Act will change that, ensuring basic freedoms and protections for every American in every state.
