Equality for All
The phrase “we the people” in the constitution refers to ALL of us. That’s why in Congress I will be a champion for human and civil rights, using my voice to protect and empower the LGBTQIA community.
My priorities in congress will include:
1. Passing the Equality Act, which will amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to end discrimination based on sexual orientation, sex and gender identity and provide critical protections on employment, housing and education.
2. Working to protect public school students from bullying and harassment based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
3. Working to reverse the discharge status of any member of the military discharged as a result of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.
4. Amending the Fair Housing Act to explicitly provide protections for LGBT Americans.
Ending the discriminatory ban on transgender service members trying to serve their country openly.
