LGBTQ Rights

LGBT Equality Flags

Currently, federal law does not explicitly prohibit discrimination in employment, housing, public accommodations, federal funding, education, credit, and jury selection based on sexual orientation and gender identity. The Equality Act would amend existing civil rights laws to protect LGBTQ people from discrimination. 

Tell Congress to pass the Every Child Deserves a Family Act and end the practice of adoption and foster care agencies discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, or marital status when considering prospective parents.

This text study provides an opportunity to highlight this issue of LGBTQ rights with audiences, such as teens and young adults, interested in connecting the work they are currently doing to secure equal rights with the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s.
