Luján Statement on Introduction of the Equality Act

U.S. House Assistant Speaker Ben Ray Luján (D-NM) issued the following statement on the introduction of the Equality Act:

“I am proud to strongly support legislation that will ensure every person is treated with dignity and respect no matter who they are, who they love, or where they live. Those are the basic civil rights our country should promise to all people and it is inspiring to see Congress take such decisive action to ensure that LGBTQ+ individuals are protected from being fired, evicted, or denied services based on their sexual orientation or gender identity.”
