Congresswoman Fudge Confirms Her Support of the LGBTQ Community


WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Marcia L. Fudge (OH-11) released the following statement confirming her support of the LGBTQ community:


“I would put my record of support for the LGBTQ community against anyone else’s and challenge anyone to refute it.  I fully support equal rights for the LGBTQ community.  There is not one vote that I have ever taken that is anti-LGBTQ.  Every vote that has been brought to me, I have supported.


“What I opposed was including the Equality Act in the current Civil Rights Act.  The Civil Rights Act is over 50 years old and isn’t even adequate to protect the people currently in it.  I want us to do a new and modern civil rights bill that protects the LGBTQ community and updates protections for this era.  I do not believe it is appropriate to open and relitigate the current Civil Rights Act.”
