This year, Congress reintroduced HR 5, known as the Equality Act. The Equality Act would amend the 1964 Civil Rights Act to explicitly prevent discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity – It would protect trans youth and the LGBTQ community from discrimination in employment, housing, education, federally funded programs, and more. It would also expand protections for women, people of color and people of faith. As it stands today, 52% of the LGBTQ community live in states with no explicit protections against discrimination.
