    Tell Your Senators: Pass the Equality Act

    On May 17, 2019 the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Equality Act. Now we need the U.S. Senate to act! Tell your Senators to pass for the Equality Act!

    The Equality Act will add sexual orientation and gender identity to existing civil and human rights laws while expanding protections for existing protected classes.

    Your voice is needed to change history! It’s been 50 years since Stonewall and 45 years since the first version of the bill was introduced. Tell your Senators: “I need explicit federal nondiscrimination laws that will protect all of me, all the time.”

    Pass the Each Woman Act—Overturn the Hyde Amendment

    The EACH Woman Act is a bold effort to reverse the Hyde Amendment’s ban on abortion coverage through Medicaid. The EACH Woman Act seeks to ensure that pregnant people can make their own decision about their pregnancy.

    For 43 years, the Hyde Amendment has been used to push abortion out of reach for people enrolled in Medicaid health insurance. It is no surprise that those excluded from abortion coverage are more likely to be people who are already failed by our health system, including people of color, queer people, young people, transgender, and non-binary people.

    No one should be denied coverage for an abortion just because they are struggling to make ends meet. Tell Congress to pass the EACH Woman Act now to overturn the Hyde Amendment!

    Abortion restrictions and coverage bans force people to delay care or stop them from getting abortions altogether. This year it’s gotten even worse, as states race to ban abortion. Those most hurt will be low-income people who can’t travel to other states to get care.

    We should all be able to live, work, and make decisions about our health and our future with dignity; however, much money we make.

    This bill creates two critical standards for reproductive health coverage.

      • First, the EACH Woman Act respects that each of us should be able to make our own decisions about pregnancy. If someone gets care or insurance through the federal government, they will be covered for all pregnancy-related care, including abortion.
      • Second, the EACH Woman Act prohibits political interference with decisions of private health insurance companies to offer coverage for abortion care. Federal, state, and local legislators will not be able to interfere with the private insurance market to prevent insurance companies from providing abortion coverage.
