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.
Every day Americans support the pledge because all of us, including those who are LGBTQ, want the ability to do our jobs and provide for our families. LGBTQ people want the same thing as everyone else -- the freedom to work hard, access basic services, and take care of themselves and their loved ones without fear of discrimination.
