Equality Act passes the House

Posted on 03-01-2021

BREAKING: The House has just passed the Equality Act, a sweeping civil rights bill that expands protections in education, housing, employment and more to LGBT people.

The bill would amend the following to extend protections to the LGBTQ community:
– The Civil Rights Act of 1964
– The Equal Credit Opportunity Act
– The Jury Selection and Services Act 
During the debate, GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene argued “the Equality Act truly destroys women’s sports and women’s rights” and conservatives pushed hard against the measures.
