The Equality Act has been reintroducted in Congress!

The Equality Act is making news again – introduced in February, passed in the House as a bipartisan bill and now active in the Senate. It would ensure non-discrimination protections for LGBTQ+ people across key areas of life, including employment, housing, credit, education, public spaces and services, federally funded programs, and jury service no matter what state they call home.

Contact your legislators NOW to move this comprehensive LGBTQ+ nondiscrimination bill through the Senate. Send a message urging them to pass the Equality Act ASAP!

Our Bold Voices Logo 450

Battle Ground High School vibrated with pride on October 20th, 2019 when seven brave souls shared their coming out journeys to a packed house. This uplifting experience, titled Coming Out as You, was captured on video to help preserve this experience and for new audiences to enjoy.

Our Bold Voices presented Prideful Voices Vancouver on June 2nd, 2019 at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Vancouver. There was storytelling and music featuring local young LGBTQ+ voices and Acchord, an auditioned a cappella group composed of transgender, non-binary, and gender non-conforming musicians.
