16 Civil Rights Leaders Demand Congress Pass the Equality Act


A group of civil rights advocates released a video on Wednesday demanding Congress take action on the Equality Act.

The video features people like the Human Rights Campaign's Chad Griffin and the National Center for Transgender Equality's Mara Keisling. Plenty of individuals not directly affiliated with the LGBTQ cause are part of the video as well, including UnidosUS President and CEO Janet Murguía and Asian Americans Advancing Justice Vice President Policy and Programs Jiny Kim.

The leaders want Congress to vote on the Equality Act, which would ban anti-LGBTQ employment, housing, and public accomodation discrimination in all 50 states. The activists also ask viewers to call their members of Congress and urge them to vote for the legislation. Watch the video below.
