“What is the Equality Act of 2021? And why is it so important? John Iadarola and David Johns break it down on The Damage Report.

Today, the House of Representatives reintroduced the Equality Act, a bill dedicated to providing explicit federal protections from discrimination on the basis of sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity for matters of employment, housing, education, jury duty, credit, and federally funded programs, among others.

If passed, the Equality Act would extend civil rights protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer+, and same gender loving (LGBTQ+/SGL) people under the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and other existing civil rights laws.
