Support the Equality Act!


Human dignity for every person!

The House has passed the Equality Act (H.R. 5). The bill would add “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to the classes protected against discrimination by the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Now we need to urge the Senate to pass this bill (S. 788) too!

The ELCA social message on Human Rights affirms: In the name of the God who creates every human being out of love, this church teaches human dignity is God’s gift to every person and that the commitment to universal rights protects that dignity. 

Many states have not enacted laws that prohibit discrimination based on both sexual orientation and gender identity in important areas such as education, employment and public accommodation. Learn more about non-discrimination laws here. Now is the time to add our voices to make long overdue inclusions to federal law.
