No more studies -- give us freedom!
Sign the pledge below to voice your support for President Barack Obama and the U.S. Congress committing, unequivocally, to take bold action for full federal LGBTQ equality. LGBTQ Americans have lived for too long without full federal equality, and it’s time for our country to address the years of oppression we have faced. The cost of inequality is too high for us to wait any longer!
IN ORDER TO FULFILL the promises of life and liberty, and to ensure equal protection under the law as guaranteed by the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution,
IN ORDER TO PROTECT the inalienable right to be safe from discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, as required under international laws and treaties,
AND IN ORDER TO END the systemic stigmatization, cease the societal rejection, and heal the suffering of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) Americans as mandated by conscience,
I PLEDGE my support for the passage of legislation that makes LGBTQ Americans fully equal under the law and grants full non-discrimination protections on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity equal to those accorded other statuses under existing civil rights laws and Supreme Court rulings.
