Now is the time to oppose the Equality Act.
Call your senators now! 

On Monday, April 12 Congress returned from break. The Equality Act could be brought to the Senate floor at any time. Please take a moment to call your senators and urge them to oppose this damaging bill. Calls have an impact so encourage everyone you know to make their Senator's phones ring. 

Here is how:

Step 1:  Call the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121 and tell the operator the state you are from and the operator will connect you to one of your senator's offices.

Step 2:Use the talking points below to urge your senator to OPPOSE the Equality Act.

Step 3: Repeat steps 1 and 2 with the other Senator from your state.

Sample script:

 “Hello, my name is ______and I live in ___________.  I urge you to oppose the Equality Actfor the following reasons (use any or all of the talking points): 

  • The Equality Act would likely force taxpayers to fund elective abortions because of the way it redefines “sex” discrimination;
  • It would likely force doctors and hospitals to perform abortions even if it's against their conscience or beliefs;
  • It would likely require all employers with more than 14 employees - even religious organizations-to cover abortions in their health insurance plans;
  • It would force vulnerable and, sometimes traumatized girls and women, in shelters or social service programs to share sleeping space, showers, and other spaces with men or be shut down;
  • Women's prisons could be open to men who self-identify as women;
  • It would shut down Catholic foster care and adoption agencies which have helped children in need for over a century without discrimination, just for protecting the children's right to be in a home with a married mother and father.
