the Equality Act

During the campaign, I said that the first legislative action I would take would be to cosponsor the Equality Act.

Federal law protects people from discrimination based on race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, ability, and veteran status.

But there's no federal law barring discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

That means LGBTQIA+ Americans threatened by unjust firings, evictions, and other discrimination without any legal recourse.

Even worse: In 2018, the Trump administration rolled back already-limited protections and introduced harmful policies that further marginalized vulnerable populations nationwide.

Action is overdue. Sign my petition with Equality California and tell Congress to protect LGBTQIA+ Americans now.

It is time we have an inclusive society for all.

Washington is in desperate need of real, meaningful, and lasting change.
Our country and our people deserve better.
