Florida Democrats Call On Rick Scott and Marco Rubio to Support the Equality Act, Now!

The House of Representatives passed a sweeping civil rights bill that will protect millions of LGBTQ Americans from discrimination. If passed by the Senate, the Equality Act would be a historic piece of legislation that moves America one step closer to equal opportunity for all her citizens.

Juan Peñalosa, executive director of the Florida Democratic Party, praised the House of Representatives and called upon senators Rick Scott and Marco Rubio to pledge their support to pass the Equality Act:

“Today was a historic day for all of us. The Equality Act will ensure LGBTQ Americans have equal opportunity in the land of the free. The next stop for the Equality Act is the U.S. Senate, and we are calling on our Florida Senators, Marco Rubio and Rick Scott to support this historic legislation. It’s time that our Senators do the right thing and say yes to passing the Equality Act.”
