THE EQUALITY ACT
Keshet and its partners are mobilizing Jewish communities in support of the Equality Act. The Equality Act is proposed federal legislation that would establish non-discrimination protections for LGBTQ Americans. Congress needs to hear from us that we want the Equality Act passed and sent to President Biden who has promised to sign it.
Go to keshetonline.org/equalityact and use the interactive form to quickly send an email/tweet a message to your senators and request stamped postcard packs from Keshet that you can mail to your senators in Congress.
