It is time to protect every American from discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, Adam knows the importance and far-reaching benefits of equality. He believes strongly in equal protections for all Americans and supports passing the Equality Act, which amends existing civil rights laws to “provide consistent and explicit non-discrimination protections for LGBTQ people across key areas of life, including employment, housing, credit, education, public spaces and services, federally funded programs, and jury service.”

Similarly, it is time for states to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment, which was passed by Congress in 1972, and prohibits denying or abridging equal rights by the nation or any state on account of sex.
