Washington, D.C. – In response to the House passage of H.R. 5, the Equality Act, Congressman Jimmy Gomez (CA-34) released the following statement:

“Today, with my brother and his husband in mind, I proudly voted to pass the Equality Act through the House of Representatives. For far too long, our government has failed to provide our LGBTQ constituents with the civil rights and federal protections they need and deserve. But now, with the passage of this historic legislation, we can finally help our communities heal from the wounds inflicted by those who turned a blind eye to their oppression. I call on the U.S. Senate to follow our lead, reject discrimination disguised as religious freedom, and send the president the Equality Act to be signed into law.”
