ADD YOUR NAME: Tell Congress that it's
time to protect all LGBTQ Americans from discrimination!
Despite significant steps forward, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) Americans lack basic legal protections in 29 states across the country. The patchwork nature of current laws leaves millions of people subject to uncertainty and potential discrimination that impacts their safety, their families, and their day-to-day lives.
Our nation’s civil rights laws protect people on the basis of race, color, national origin, and in most cases, sex, disability, and religion. But federal law does not provide consistent non-discrimination protections based on sexual orientation or gender identity. The need for these protections is clear—nearly two-thirds of LGBTQ Americans report having experienced discrimination in their personal lives.
Everyone should have a fair chance to earn a living and provide a home for their families without fear of harassment or discrimination.
ADD YOUR NAME if you think it's time for our country to support all LGBTQ Americans with explicit and consistent non-discrimination protections.
"More than ten years ago, Colorado passed protections to ensure that LGBTQ Coloradans are treated with dignity and respect, and it’s time for our federal government to do the same. Nearly half of LGBTQ Americans living in 29 states remain unprotected from discrimination when trying to access public services, get a job, or secure housing. Our community deserves more than patchwork policies to protect ourselves and our families.”
