West Virginians, Tell Joe Manchin to Support The Equality Act
Call on Manchin to support 58,000 LGBTQ West Virginians living without discrimination protections
by GLAAD | 3.18.19
There’s one BIG name missing as co-sponsor of the Equality Act: U.S. Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia.
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.
With transgender students being targeted in his state, Manchin’s support for the Equality Act could send a much-needed statement to West Virginians that all people – regardless of who you are or love – are welcome in the state.
Contact the Senator's office and tell Joe Manchin to support and sign on as co-sponsor for the Equality Act!
