Sample letter to your senators

In approximately half of our 50 states, a person can be denied employment or housing simply on the basis of their sexuality or gender identity.

This situation can easily be remedied by amending our various civil rights protections to include these factors as protected classes. The Equality Act (HR-5), which passed the House of Representatives, does just that.

The bill can only become law if the Senate allows a vote on it and it passes. Otherwise, our country will be left with the above-mentioned inequities.

As your constituent, I urge you to push for the Senate to be allowed to vote on the Equality Act, and to vote for its passage.

The bill passed with an anonymous voice vote. As your constituent, I would like to know how you voted on this bill. Should the Senate pass a changed version, I am urging you to demand a roll-call vote on the reconciled bill and to vote for its passage.
