Washington, DC – Today, Equality PAC Co-Chairs Chairman Mark Takano (D-CA) and  Congressman David Cicilline (D-RI) released the following statement regarding passage  of the Equality Act by the House of Representatives. 

“For millions of LGBTQ Americans, the Equality Act means that they will finally have the  protections they desperately need and no longer have to fear being discriminated  against in the areas of housing, healthcare, credit and so much more,” said Equality PAC Co-Chairs Chairman Mark Takano and Congressman David Cicilline. “Now that  the House of Representatives has passed the Equality Act with bipartisan support, we  are one step closer to making the Equality Act the law of the land, ensuring protections  for millions of LGBTQ Americans and their families. We urge the Senate to quickly pass  this critical legislation and send it to President Biden’s desk for his signature.”

All funds raised  into Equality PAC are spent supporting and electing openly LGBTQ individuals and  strong LGBTQ allies to the United States Congress who are committed to passing  the Equality Act and to ensuring full civil rights and protections for all LGBTQ  Americans.
