Freedom for All Americans Launches Digital Media Buy to Encourage Passage of LGBTQ ProtectionsOctober 12, 2021 • 11:00 am
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Freedom for All Americans today launched a month-long digital media buy urging congressional action in support of passing federal nondiscrimination protections for LGBTQ Americans. Kasey Suffredini (he/him/his), FFAA’s CEO and National Campaign Director, released the following statement:
“Since the first federal LGBTQ nondiscrimination bill was introduced nearly 50 years ago, LGBTQ people have worked tirelessly to demonstrate the pervasive harm inequality causes our community. Discrimination against LGBTQ Americans happens every day, but most people are unaware that federal law does not yet explicitly prohibit it. Right now, our community is at a historic moment where — for the first time — leaders in both chambers of Congress and our President are strong supporters of ensuring LGBTQ people can go about their daily lives with dignity and respect. Freedom for All Americans is committed to doing everything we can to seize this moment so that our LGBTQ neighbors, friends, family members, and loved ones are granted this most basic promise of equal treatment under our nation’s civil rights laws. A supermajority of Americans from all political ideologies are ready to see their values reflected in our nation’s laws, and Congress must act.”
The month-long, six-figure digital ad buy will run in Politico, The Washington Post and The Hill and is timed to coincide with a multi-million dollar campaign push to urge the U.S. Senate to pass LGBTQ nondiscrimination protections. The ads, along with a senator contact page, highlight the public’s broad bipartisan support for federal protections and the fact that Congress now has the opportunity of a generation to pass legislation.
Freedom for All Americans is the bipartisan campaign to secure full nondiscrimination protections for LGBTQ people nationwide. Our work brings together Republicans and Democrats, businesses large and small, people of faith, and allies from all walks of life to make the case for comprehensive nondiscrimination protections that ensure everyone is treated fairly and equally.
