PFLAG National Executive Director Jody Huckaby on
Obama Administration Endorsement of The Equality Act
WASHINGTON, DC—PFLAG National Executive Director Jody M. Huckaby reacted to today’s endorsement of the Equality Act by the Obama Administration:

“Each day that goes by without the nondiscrimination protections the Equality Act would afford, our lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender children and loved ones are at risk of being denied access to public education and federally funded programs, and of losing their homes and their jobs. PFLAG’s values are America’s values and that means full protection from discrimination for all people, including those who are LGBTQ, women, and people of color.  We thank the Obama Administration for its endorsement of the Equality Act; PFLAG--with its hundreds of chapters and thousands of members across the country--is committed to working toward its passage in partnership with Congress and all who believe in the value of fairness.”


Founded in 1972 with the simple act of a mother publicly supporting her gay son, PFLAG is the original family and ally organization. Uniting people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) with families, friends, and allies, PFLAG is committed to advancing equality through its mission of support, education, and advocacy. PFLAG has more than 400 chapters and 200,000 supporters crossing multiple generations of American families in major urban centers, small cities, and rural areas in all 50 states and Puerto Rico.
