Let’s Thank Our People for Doing the Right Thing!

Our legislators stepped up, so let’s thank them. They’re cosponsoring the Equality Act (S.1006/ HR 2282)! 

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 prevents discrimination because of race, skin color, sex, religion, and national origin. However, it does not cover sexual orientation or gender identity. In 30 states, LGBTQ people can legally be fired, harassed at work, barred from businesses and denied housing because of their sexual orientation and/or gender identity. Let’s fix this now!
Script for Senators: I’m writing to thank Sen.  (___) for cosponsoring S.1006. It’s shameful that in the twenty first century, it’s still legal to discriminate against other Americans. It’s time that all people can feel safe and respected in their own country.

Script for Representatives: I’m writing to thank Rep.  (___) for cosponsoring HR 2282. It’s shameful that in the twenty first century, it’s still legal to discriminate against other Americans. It’s time that all people can feel safe and respected in their own country.
