"For issues like housing and employment discrimination, the Equality Act is groundbreaking, and represents a critical step forward in ending the discrimination that LGBTQ people experience every single day. We applaud the leadership of Senators Merkley, Baldwin and Booker, and Representative Cicilline, for their commitment to equality. No one should be fired from their job or denied a place to live simply because of who they are or whom they love.
"Unfortunately, these types of discrimination are far from the only injustices LGBTQ people experience. As an organization committed to social justice, and to protecting the human rights of all, regardless of immigration status, we are deeply concerned that this legislation fails to address the needs of all members of our community. We cannot achieve true equality when queer and trans immigrants are denied their basic rights, torn from their families, and denied healthcare by an inhumane and unworkable immigration system. We cannot achieve full equality when trans women of color continue to experience appalling rates of violence, including at the hands of police and ICE officials.
"We look forward to working with our champions in the House and Senate to advance legislation that addresses the lived experiences and priorities of all LGBTQ people, including LGBTQ people of color and our undocumented hermanas and hermanos."
