AFTER MORE THAN FIVE YEARS OF WORK--INCLUDING HELPING TO DRAFT THE INITIAL LEGISLATION, BUILDING BIPARTISAN SUPPORT, DRIVING COALITION AND BUSINESS SUPPORT, SHAPING THE PUBLIC NARRATIVE AND STRATEGIZING TO ENSURE THE BILL WAS A PRIORITY--THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES PASSED THE EQUALITY ACT, WHICH WOULD UPDATE OUR NATION'S CIVIL RIGHTS LAWS TO EXPLICITLY PROTECT LGBTQ PEOPLE FROM DISCRIMINATION.
