Rep. Haley Stevens Votes to Pass Historic Equality Act
WASHINGTON — On Thursday, U.S. Congresswoman Haley Stevens (MI-11) voted to pass the Equality Act. This landmark legislation will ensure that LGBTQ Americans are guaranteed the full protection of federal civil rights law.
“Every American deserves equal treatment under the law,” said Congresswoman Stevens. “I was proud to vote for the Equality Act in 2019, and now in 2021, it is even more imperative that we get this to the Senate and to the President’s desk to be signed into law. Too many of our LGBTQ family, friends, coworkers, and loved ones face discrimination every day, all across the nation. Passing this bill today will send a powerful bipartisan message to members of the LGBTQ community that they are not second class citizens.”
