The Equality Act was introduced in the House of Representatives earlier this month with 287 cosponsors from both sides of aisle. This critical piece of legislation is intended to address the lack of equal rights protections for LGBTQ Americans and families across the country, extending protections in employment, housing, services and other frequent areas of discrimination. Interfaith Alliance is one of the many organizations working to ensure Congress passes this important bill. Interfaith Alliance has pushed for protections for the LGBTQ community for years – including long before many faith-based groups were. Katy Joseph, legislative policy and education advisor at Interfaith Alliance, will join State of Belief host Rev. Welton Gaddy to talk about the bill and how the faith community is mobilizing in support of it.
