29 states still do not have laws shielding our LGBTQ+ friends from discrimination. This month, and every month, it’s vital that we afford the same legal protections that the rest of us receive.
I’m proud the House passed the Equality Act—the Senate must do the same. pic.twitter.com/tmF4gJqcu3

Between 1866 and 1890, there were NINE landmark civil rights laws enacted by Congress.
None of them received bipartisan votes but all of them were popular, urgent, and necessary for taking critical steps towards equality, justice, and opportunity for Black people across America.

Thanks to the leadership of Black and Brown trans women, we’re able to celebrate #PrideMonth.
We must honor their activism with not just words, but action. Let’s pass the Equality Act and ensure equal protections for the LGBTQIA community.

Happy #Pride! This June, we celebrate the many contributions of LGBTQ+ Americans, and the incredible progress our nation has made toward equality. We will not rest until every American—no matter who they are or who they love—is treated equally and with dignity.

We’ve recently seen disturbing antisemitic attacks and a troubling rise in Islamophobia. If you are committed to a future of equality and peaceful coexistence, please stand united against anyone who promotes hatred of any kind.
