Illinoisans, Tell Dan Lipinski to Support The Equality Act

Call on Lipinski to support 425,000 LGBTQ people living without discrimination protections in Illinois

by GLAAD | 3.18.19

 There’s one BIG name missing as co-sponsor of the Equality Act: U.S. Congressman Dan Lipinski of Illinois

Under the Equality Act, LGBTQ people would have guaranteed, across-the-board protections in their everyday lives. A person’s sexual orientation or gender identity would be added as a protected class that would prevent any form of discrimination at the workplace, at home, or any other public venue – such as a pharmacy or school. 

About 70% of Illinoisans support adding nondiscrimination protections for the 425,000 LGBTQ people in the state, and yet, Congressman Lipinski remains silent.

Lipinski’s support for the Equality Act could send a much-needed statement to Illinoisans that all people – regardless of who you are or love – are welcome in the state.  

Contact Congressman Lipinski and tell him to support and sign on as co-sponsor for the Equality Act!
