UPDATE: The Grassroots amongst us have come up with The American Equality Bill - Launched Independence Day 2010 - Please Visit http://bit.ly/AEBnow to find out more and how you can get involved.
We have seen the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell but that's not enough. Now would be an ideal time for us to speak with one unified voice to call for full federal equality for all Americans. We ask you now for your support of the American Equality Bill.
The Declaration of Independence promises all Americans to the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness but disparities in employment, the military, housing, marriage and healthcare continue a long tradition of segregating Lesbian, Gay, Transgendered and Bisexual Americans to second class citizenship. Regardless of anyone's personal or religious beliefs, all citizens should have access to their promised rights and responsibilities. and all elected leadership should stand for what our founding fathers promised to all Americans.
With a petition to revive the proposal to write "sexual orientation and gender identity" into the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as first proposed by then Representatives of New York Bella Abzug and Ed Koch in 1974, and now reintroduced in the American Equality Bill, there would be a simple, sweeping move to finally end the second class status of Americans who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Transgendered or Bisexual.
