What is the “Equality Act”?
This week, the U.S. House will vote on a bill known as the “Equality Act” — the most dangerous piece of legislation to come out of Congress.
This bill would create new protected classes based on a person’s self-identified sexual orientation and gender identity. If it became law, the Equality Act would pose serious threats, especially to women and children across the nation:
Sanctioning abortions and removing pro-life protections
Introducing explicit content in school curriculum across the nation
Pressuring struggling children toward experimental cross-sex hormones and surgery
Letting males win girls’ sports championships
Allowing males to enter girls’ locker rooms and women’s shelters
Closing the doors of faith-based foster and adoption agencies
Denying parental rights in the name of a sexualized political ideology
Silencing all of us who disagree
The Equality Act would bring these harms nationwide, with the force (and taxpayer money) of the federal government behind them. That’s a huge threat.
We must make it absolutely clear to members of Congress that not only is this not “equality,” but it’s downright dangerous and we will not stand for it. Our nation was founded upon equality, the truth that all of us are created equally. The Equality Act is a cheap counterfeit of those words, and Congress must not get away with it! We need your help to EXPOSE the Equality Act.
EXPOSE the Equality Act!
Nancy Pelosi and other Democratic leaders will not allow any amendments on the Equality Act.
That means that there is no opportunity for members of Congress to vote on individual threats and concerns within the bill, and certainly no chance to improve the bill in any way. And, we know mainstream media will make the bill sound completely harmless. That’s why we’re holding the rally—we need your help to EXPOSE what’s really going on! Don’t forget to RSVP!
Wednesday, February 24

Streaming LIVE on Facebook and YouTube
Perhaps at another time, Americans would have gathered outside the U.S. Capitol to peacefully express their opposition to this dangerous legislation.
But right now, the U.S. Capitol is surrounded by guards and wire fencing. At a time when Congress most needs to hear our voice, we can’t go there to share it. So instead, we’re gathering online. The rally will stream live across Facebook and YouTube, and in order to send a strong message to Congress, it’s critical that many people join.
Who’s Attending The Equality Act Exposed Rally?
Family Policy Alliance will be hosting this event, and we’re excited to be joined by our friends from many other outstanding organizations that you may know! During the one-hour rally, you’ll hear from prominent leaders across the political spectrum – and in true rally fashion, audience participation will be encouraged, virtual-style.
We’ll even be looking to see which state brings the most people to the virtual rally!
Here are some of the organizations confirmed to attend:
- The Heritage Foundation
- Family Research Council

- Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF)

We’re excited to hear from prominent speakers at these organizations sharing different perspectives that expose what’s really going on in the Equality Act, feature surprise guests, and see all of you!

The so-called Equality Act poses serious threats to Americans, especially women and children.
If it becomes law, the Act will serve as a backdoor way to sanction abortions, introduce explicit content in school curriculum, let boys win in girls’ sports, pressure children toward experimental cross-sex hormones – and silence all of us who disagree.
