Sign the pledge to work toward FULL equality for LGBT Americans by entering your name and information below!
IN ORDER TO FULFILL the promises of life and liberty, and to ensure equal protection under the law as guaranteed by the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution,
IN ORDER TO PROTECT the inalienable right to be safe from discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, as required under international laws and treaties,
AND IN ORDER TO END the systemic stigmatization, cease the societal rejection, and heal the suffering of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Americans as mandated by conscience,
I PLEDGE my support for the passage of full equality* legislation that makes LGBT Americans fully equal under the law and grants full non-discrimination protections on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity equal to those accorded other statuses under existing civil rights laws and Supreme Court rulings.
* What We Mean By "Full Equality":
Public Accommodations (e.g., restaurants, hotels, theaters)
Public Facilities (e.g., courthouses, jails, hospitals, parks)
Federally-Funded Programs (e.g., adoption, police, schools, homeless shelters, health care)
Employment (e.g., civilian and military government, private sector)
Housing (e.g., rental, purchase, finance)
Education (e.g., schools, bullying)
Credit (e.g., credit cards, mortgages)
Federal Marriage Equality (e.g., federally-recognized and 50-state marriage equality)
Immigration Status, Disability, and Family Leave (e.g. LGBT protections in the Americans With Disabilities Act and the Family and Medical Leave Act, and the provisions within the proposed Uniting American Families Act)
