A Day in History - Equality Act!
The Democratic-led House of Representatives in a historic and critical vote today passed the Equality Act! The Equality Act is a bill that will prohibit discrimination against the LGBTQ community in the United States. This is the first time in American history that an LGBTQ civil rights bill has passed Congress.
“Today's historic vote is a major milestone for equality and sends a powerful and profound message to LGBTQ people, especially LGBTQ youth, that the U.S. House has their backs,” Human Rights Campaign President Chad Griffin said in a statement. “No one’s rights should depend on which side of a state or city line they live on, and today we took a giant step forward in our journey toward full equality.”
We are clearly still unsure of the final outcome as this bill heads to the Senate, but we shall celebrate this victory today and continue to be hopeful for the future! As together we can make positive changes for ALL!
