Script for calling your U.S. senator: 

“Hello, my name is ______ and I am calling to urge you to vote FOR the Equality Act. There are rampant bills in progress all around the country that aim to discriminate based on gender identity and more. This is unconstitutional. Please vote for the Equality Act to protect ALL Americans.”


BACKGROUND INFORMATION

At least 25 U.S. states are proposing (and some are passing) anti-trans bills that discriminate based on gender identity and more. These are unconstitutional and we need federal protection in the form of the Equality Act*. 

For example, Arkansas just passed a law allowing EMTs and doctors to refuse to treat LGBTQ+ people due to ‘religious liberty.’ Religious liberty should never allow anyone to deny anyone healthcare. This is massively discriminatory, harmful, and clearly unconstitutional.

*The Equality Act would amend the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin, to explicitly include gender identity and sexual orientation.
