Sign the petition: Protect LGBTQIA+ rights!

There's no federal law barring discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

That means the Trump administration can scrub references to LGBTQIA+ rights on the White House website – which they did in January 2017.

That means the Trump administration can delete questions about sexual orientation and gender identity from the US Census – which they did in March 2018.

That means Trump's Health and Human Services Department can redefine "sex" to exclude trans people, denying them the right to equal access to health care, housing, education, and fair treatment under the law – which they did in October 2018.

It means that bigots nationwide can decide that some people are worth less than others, simply because of who they are.

Sign the petition! Demand Congress take action to protect LGBTQIA+ Americans – now!

Let me be perfectly clear, so there's no room for doubt: every single person deserves equal protection under our laws. And when the laws don't provide that protection, they need to be changed.

Add your name to tell Congress "Defend the rights of all Americans! Support LGBTQIA+ Americans!"
