Support the Equality Act—Contact your senators today!


In May, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a historic piece of legislation that would finally prohibit discrimination based on an individual’s sexual orientation or gender identity in schools, at work, and in the context of housing, credit, and jury service.

The Equality Act (H.R. 5 and S. 788) has made it through one chamber of Congress, but now it's up to the senate to act. Your senators need to hear from influential constituents and school leaders like you today to sway their decision. Your voice matters, and there has never been a more important time to stand up for LGBTQ students, educators, and school staff to ensure that they are afforded the same rights and protections as all Americans.

Contact your senators using the tools below and ask them to support the Equality Act!

*You'll receive a call from 703-420-3185 that will provide you guidance on what to say to your officials, and then patch you through directly to them.

Hello, my name is [name] and I am one of [senator]’s constituents from [city/location].

I am calling to urge [senator] to support the Equality Act. As a school leader, I believe that no educator should be fired or discriminated against based on their sexual orientation or gender identity. This long overdue legislation would finally ensure that the same rights, privileges, and protections are provided to all Americans.

Please tell [senator] that educators in our community support the Equality Act, and we urge [him/her] to support the legislation, as well.

Thank you.
