HISTORIC: U.S. House of Representatives passes the Equality Act.

The historic passage of the Equality Act by the U.S. House of Representatives is a major milestone for equality. Now, we will take our fight to the U.S. Senate.

In 30 states, LGBTQ people are at risk of being fired, refused housing or denied services simply because of who we are. We need the Equality Act NOW.
