U.S. Senate

The Equality Act

Bill description

Don't let the name fool you. If passed, the Equality Act would amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity in employment, housing, public accommodations, public education, federal funding, credit, and the jury system. This legislation would have profound devastations to women, sports leagues, houses of worship, education, medical professionals, non-profits, and even the LGBTQ population the bill claims to protect.

According to the Family Research Council:

The Equality Act is legislation that would massively overhaul our federal civil rights framework in order to mandate special privileges for sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI), expand abortion access, and gut religious liberty—leaving many to suffer the consequences, including women, children, medical professionals, parents, teachers, students, families (including small business owners), the unborn, churches, religious organizations and schools, people of faith, and even those members of the LGBT community it claims to protect. It would create these mandates by redefining what we mean by the concept of biological sex, redefining what constitutes “discrimination on the basis of sex,” and significantly expanding the scope of various civil rights laws, while exempting itself from the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, in order to impose its requirements as broadly as possible.

The bill (H.R. 5, now S.393) has already passed in the House and is now going to the Senate chambers. Join the American Council and tell your U.S. Senator to oppose the Equality Act.
