Equality & Civil Rights
I believe that our federal government must work to provide and protect basic civil liberties to all Americans. As a member of the Congressional LGBT Equality Caucus, I will keep fighting every day to make sure that LGBT people are ensured equal protection under the law.
As a member of the LGBT Equality Caucus, I work with my colleagues in the House to address some of our country’s most pressing equality issues, including fighting anti-LGBT appropriations amendments, and advocating for education and aging protections.
I am proud to be an original cosponsor of the Equality Act, a bipartisan, comprehensive nondiscrimination bill to extend civil rights protections to LGBT Americans.
