The Equality Act

Tell Congress: Support LGBTQ+ Equality

Every one of us should be able to live free from discrimination. Unfortunately, Christian nationalists and their allies are waging an all-out war against our LGBTQ+ siblings, weaponizing faith as a license to discriminate. Tell your Members of Congress: Co-sponsor the Equality Act. Together, we can make our vision of an inclusive democracy a reality.

As people of faith and none, we have a role to play in showing up for LGBTQ+ protections.

It’s past time for the faith community to show up for LGBTQ+ rights.

Every person has inherent dignity and worth, deserving equal treatment under the law. But religious freedom claims have increasingly been used to ostracize LGBTQ+ people and exclude them from public life. The Equality Act would reverse this disturbing trend by prohibiting the misuse of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) to justify discrimination.

The Faith for Equality Coalition is committed to affirming the dignity of all LGBTQ+ Americans, including many beloved members of our faith communities. The Equality Act ensures that LGBTQ+ people – including religious and non-religiously affiliated people – enjoy the same freedoms under the law as their neighbors.

LGBTQ+ people are a part of every community. Our people have distinct needs caused by intersecting manifestations of oppression. We need solutions that address these specific needs and experiences while centering the most marginalized among us.
