Washington, D.C. - Congressman Jim Costa released the following statement on the introduction of H.R.5 - The Equality Act.

“California has provided LGBTQ protections for years, but 30 states still leave LGBTQ people at risk of being fired, evicted or denied services - simply for being who they are. I am proud to join my colleagues in Congress to co-sponsor the Equality Act. We must end this patchwork of protections once and for all, and ensure that every American’s rights are protected.” 

Rep. Costa is a proud member of the Congressional LGBT Equality Caucus. With 155 members, it is the largest Equality Caucus in the history of the U.S. House of Representatives.
