Join us as we speak with Senator Tammy Baldwin, a leading co-sponsor of the Equality Act, about the bill and what steps we can take as Americans abroad to ensure its passage.
“There will not be a magic day when we wake up and it's now OK to express ourselves publicly. We must make that day ourselves, by speaking out publicly -- first in small numbers, then in greater numbers, until it's simply the way things are and no one thinks twice. Never doubt that we will create this world, because, my friends, we are fortunate to live in a democracy, and in a democracy, we decide what's possible.”
-- Tammy Baldwin
