Kvetch and Kvell: For The Equality Act

Keshet and the Human Rights Campaign are partnering to host Kvetch and Kvell for the Equality Act: Call your Senators!, featuring Miz Cracker from RuPaul’s Drag Race.

Miz Cracker is going to entertain and enlighten us with performances, Jewish wisdom, and personal anecdotes from her life as a proud queer Jew. This night of fun, exuberance, and an unrelenting commitment to our collective liberation is an opportunity to mobilize the LGBTQ Jewish community and allies to make calls to the Senate calling for the passage of the Equality Act.

Folks will be invited to both 1. Make calls to their Senators and 2. Call their friends, family, and literally everyone you know to also make calls to the Senate in support of the Equality Act. 79% of American Jews support nondiscrimination protections for the LGBTQ community, however the loudest faith voices — both in calls to Capitol Hill and in the general public — are from the minority of people of faith in the country who oppose LGBTQ equality. This is our moment to show them that the Jewish community proudly supports LGBTQ nondiscrimination, not despite religion, but because Jewish values explicitly state that all people are to be treated with fairness, respect, and dignity.
