They discussed a range of issues, including the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the Equality Act.
Zibell and Covrigaru thanked him for stating publically that he would not support the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, which provides healthcare for millions of LGBTQ people.
They also discussed the Equality Act, which establishes explicit, permanent protections against discrimination based on an individual’s sexual orientation or gender identity in matters of employment, housing, access to public places, federal funding, credit, education and jury service. In addition, it would prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex in federal funding and access to public places.
