It’s been three years since the official founding of Freedom for All Americans, our bipartisan campaign to secure nondiscrimination protections for all LGBTQ people nationwide!

Today, let’s take a minute, recharge, celebrate 3 years of great work with our brand new video, and then get back to work! http://bit.ly/2sN9i7Z

🌈The fact is there’s room for everyone – and a role for all to play – in our movement to end anti-#LGBTQ discrimination. All LGBTQ people and their allies should celebrate our steps forward, commit to the work ahead, and take pride. That’s why all this month we’re sharing stories of supporters of LGBTQ equality who are sounding off on why they’re “Proud to Be…,” whether that phrase ends with “transgender,” “legally married,” or “a supporter of equality.” Please take a moment to tell us what you’re Proud to Be – just click here to share with us!
