Brown Harris Stevens is proud to be a member of the Human Rights Campaign's Business Coalition for the Equality Act, a group of 300+ leading U.S. employers supporting bipartisan legislation to provide the same basic protections to LGBTQ+ people as are provided to other protected groups under federal law.
The Equality Act creates clear, consistent protections to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity in employment, housing, credit, and jury service.
At Brown Harris Stevens, we believe everyone deserves equal protection under the law regardless of where you come from, what you look like, how you worship, or who you love. As real estate professionals, we believe that all types of discrimination in housing should be explicitly prohibited. Currently, the Fair Housing Act does not specifically mention sexual orientation and gender identity as protected categories. The passage of the Equality Act would change that.
