Senate Hearing For The Equality Act

By Charlotte Robinson, March 17, 2021

Finally the Equality Act H.R.5 will have its day today March 17th starting at 10A EST before the U.S. Senate Committee. Kierra Johnson, Executive Director of the National LGBTQ Task Force Action Fund stated, “Today we will witness history. This hearing will impact the lives of millions of LGBTQ people & we will all be watching. We are ready to fight for the passage of the Equality Act & welcome a full & fair discussion of how this will make the lives of LGBTQ people better & help this nation take one more step towards living its values of equality & justice for all. The National LGBTQ Task Force believes in the power, diversity & goodness of people & it is this that has led to our commitment to advocate for justice for all people & work to ensure our country actively respects, embraces & values all its people. The gift of this moment is to look deep inside of our collective selves & ask, ‘What are the limits of Love & Justice?’ We believe they are unlimited. Today, we can prove it.” Brian K. Bond, Executive Director of PFLAG National concluded, “As a gay man living with HIV, raised in rural America, with a deep faith in God & taught to have respect for all people, I have to pick & choose which businesses I frequent, where I choose to get healthcare, where I live, work & travel. When I have no choice, all I can do is hope to be served without discrimination. This is because, like all LGBTQ+ people, I am not protected under current federal law & depend on a patchwork of local laws to protect me. For hundreds of thousands of PFLAGers across the country, the Equality Act represents the opportunity for this country to live up to its promise of equality, liberty & justice for all.” Watch Here…
