DNC on the Introduction of the Equality Act

Today, the Equality Act, a comprehensive bill to expand non-discrimination protections for LGBTQ people, was introduced by Democrats in the House and Senate. LGBTQ Media Director Lucas Acosta released the following statement in response:


“While the Trump administration prepares to implement the transgender military ban, House and Senate Democrats took a stand against hate and bigotry and reintroduced the Equality Act. For decades, LGBTQ people have been fighting to be treated fairly and with respect. Now, with support from the business community and Democrats in both houses of Congress, we have the opportunity to truly ensure that every LGBTQ person is protected from discrimination, no matter which side of a state border they live on. Democrats in Congress stand ready to fight with the LGBTQ community and support the Equality Act.”
