Thank your CA MoCs for cosponsoring the Equality Act (S. 1006/ HR 2282)

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 prevents discrimination because of race, skin color, sex, religion, and national origin. However, it does not cover sexual orientation or gender identity. In 30 states, LGBTQ people can legally be fired, harassed at work, barred from businesses and denied housing because of their sexual orientation and/or gender identity. Let’s fix this now.

Script: I’m writing to thank Rep./Sen.  (___) for cosponsoring S.1006/ HR 2282. It’s shameful that in the twenty first century, it’s still legal to discriminate against other Americans. It’s time that all people can feel safe and respected in their own country.

ACT for America!

Today, ACT for America (an extremist group that is tracked by the Southern Poverty Law Center) is sponsoring 28 anti-Shariah marches around the country.  We are not advocating in-person counter-protest, both for reasons of safety, and because we don’t want to give the marchers any extra publicity.  But consider making a donation to the SPLC today in honor of their important work.
