Discrimination is wrong. But in 30 states, LGBTQ people are at risk of being fired, refused housing or denied services simply because of who we are.
This is why we need the Equality Act -- a federal bill that will add LGBTQ people to existing civil rights laws and strengthening protections for all people -- including
women, religious minorities, and people of color.
The new Congress is an opportunity to advance federal legislation that protects all of our communities, especially those who are LGBTQ, Asian, immigrants, and young people. Join
NQAPIA to support the Equality Act to outlaw discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender-identity in employment, housing, education, and public spaces.
NQAPIA is leading a lobbying campaign for 3 bills to push Congress to support the LGBTQ+ API community. One of these 3 bills is the Equality Act, which would outlaw discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender-identity in employment, housing, education, and public spaces.
Because of your location, unfortunately you can't directly take action on this right now. What you can do instead to contribute is you can participate in the general Protecting LGBTQ API communities action [link here]. You can also share the link to these actions so that others may see and participate as well.
