Equality Act & Fairness For All: Implications for Faith Based Organizations
Federal legislation called the Equality Act aims to protect LGBTQ rights. Fairness for All aims to protect both LGBTQ civil rights and the religious freedom of faith-based organizations, not one at the expense of the other. Learn about both and how to take action.

About the event
Join APJ for a gathering with Stanley Carlson-Thies, director of the Center for Public Justice’s Institutional Religious Freedom Alliance, moderated by APJ Board Co-Chair, Art Hooker. Stanley will provide an overview of the implications for faith-based organizations and religious freedom more broadly from the Equality Act as currently written that is before the U.S. Senate, as well as the Fairness for All legislation developed in coalition by the Center for Public Justice to protect LGBTQ rights and religious freedom simultaneously, rather than one at the expense of the other. Art will moderate the discussion, and APJ Executive Director Stephanie Summers will share APJ's advocacy strategy. A time of Q&A will follow, as well as a discussion of next steps. Questions may be directed to Nancy Yu at firstname.lastname@example.org.
