Press Release

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi, who serves as a Vice Chair of the Congressional LGBTQ+ Equality Caucus, hailed the passage of the Equality Act this afternoon:

“I’m proud to have cosponsored the Equality Act and to have fought for its successful House passage as we’ve taken this crucial step to protect the dignity and civil rights of LGBTQ+ Americans. Despite how far we have come as a country over the last few decades, in 29 states, LGBTQ+ people can still be discriminated against because of who they are and whom they love. The Equality Act will change that by continuing our nation’s legacy of progress in expanding civil rights to protect more Americans as we continue to build a more perfect union.”
