The U.S. House is slated to vote this week on the Equality Act (HR 5), a critical piece of legislation that would finally cement federal civil rights protections for LGBTQ Americans.
Please join FFRF in calling on Congress to immediately pass the long-overdue Equality Act.
Currently, 30 states have no anti-discrimination protections for LGBTQ people. In such states, LGBTQ individuals can be fired from their jobs, evicted from their homes, denied service from restaurants and stores or refused credit from banks simply because of their identity. The underpinning of this discrimination is religious doctrine that condemns LGBTQ individuals.
At every turn, Christian nationalists exploit this loophole in current federal civil rights law to discriminate under the guise of their distorted view of “religious liberty.”
