The Equality and Fairness for All Americans pledge is a nationwide effort by LGBTQ leaders, faith leaders, individuals, businesses, trade associations and civic leader leaders to advance equality and federal non-discrimination protections for all Americans in employment, education, housing, credit, jury service and public accommodations.
Support for LGBTQ non-discrimination protections has continued to grow in recent years across all demographics. Over 94% of Fortune 500 companies have non-discrimination policies that include gender identity and/or sexual orientation.
Additionally, a 2020 poll from the nonpartisan Public Religion Research Institute found that 76% of Americans favor laws that would prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity in employment, housing, and public accommodations.
Elected officials support the pledge because the principles of non-discrimination are rooted in core American values of fairness, equality, and opportunity.
