Small Business Support for the Equality Act
We thank you for being a member of the coalition of businesses that are working to defend the bedrock principle that when a business opens its doors to the public, it should be Open to All.
We have a tremendous opportunity to engage in building support for civil rights. The Equality Act updates protections for people of color, immigrants, religious minorities, women, and LGBTQ people in all these areas. That’s why it has received support and endorsement from nearly 600 advocacy organizations from across constituencies and issue areas. These supporters include leading organizations in the civil rights community, the business community, the faith community, women’s rights advocates, and many other groups.
Open to All is working in partnership with Freedom For All Americans to galvanize our small business coalition in key states to educate you on the importance of expanding federal civil rights protections and invite you to engage within your state as visible advocates for equality. We need your help to build support for the Equality Act and want you to be engaged at a level that you’re comfortable with. As a business partner in this effort you will have access to:
- Briefings on the Equality Act for state business partners including what companies can do to protect and support their customers in retail spaces.
Join our next Open to All Equality Act Small Business briefing in partnership with Freedom For All Americans and learn about how small businesses can engage within their state as visible and vocal advocates for equality, and what you can do to protect and support customers in retail spaces.
Date and Time: Thursday, May 13, 2021 from 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm EST
Conference Line (audio only): 510-250-2694 (No PIN needed)
- Business Resource Toolkit including customer and employee messaging guidance, media material templates, sample social media posts and graphics, and more.
