Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene Files Three America First Amendments to So-Called "Equality" Act

February 23, 2021

Washington D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene filed three America First amendments to the Democrats' so-called "Equality" Act. This legislation expands governmental regulatory reach that destroys women’s rights, religious rights, and rights of the unborn.

Rep. Greene's amendments would fundamentally change this disastrous bill to protect women and girls in sports, defend the rights of churches and religious institutions, and allows individuals to sue the Federal government if their religious rights are violated.

Protect Women in Sports Amendment:

  • Erases the "Equality" Act and replaces it with the Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act of 2021 to prevent biological males from participating in women's sports

Exempting Churches from "Equality" Act Amendment:

  • Carves out 501c3 non-profits from the effects of the "Equality" Act

Religious Freedom Preservation Amendment:

  • Allows Americans to sue or bring a claim against the government if their religious rights are violated

Congresswoman Greene issued the following statement:

“I’ve introduced these amendments to the so-called 'Equality' Act in order to stop this Democrat attack on girls, churches, and believers.”
