I believe all Americans, regardless of gender, race, creed or sexual orientation, should have access to the same opportunities and responsibilities.
The Supreme Court’s legalization of nationwide marriage equality is an enormous step forward, but work remains to ensure LGBT individuals can enjoy the same rights in their jobs and careers as each of their coworkers.
I am proud to have helped introduce the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, which extends the existing workplace protections for age, gender, race and religion to sexual orientation and identity. It is unconscionable to allow people to be legally discriminated against in the workplace. I also support the Equality Act which extends protections to cover housing, public education, federal funding, and more.
