LGBTQ+ and gender equality is very personal to Jennifer. She has many close LGBTQ+ family members and has seen firsthand the blatant discrimination and hate that LGBTQ+ people face every day. Federal law does very little to explicitly guarantee civil rights regarding gender identity or sexual orientation and it should.
The right to Equal Marriage and nondiscrimination at work and in our communities is non-negotiable and consistent with our founding principles. That is why Jennifer strongly supports passing The Equality Act as well as the Every Child Deserves a Family Act.
“Then not only custom, but also nature affirms that to do is more disgraceful than to suffer injustice, and that justice is equality.”
