Civil Rights


Beatty's Fighting for Civil Rights

I have worked my entire life to advance equal rights for all Americans and to create an America where each and every one of us has equal opportunity, regardless of how we look, who we love, or what we believe. Everyone should be able to live their lives free from discrimination based on race, gender, ethnicity, age, religion, sexual orientation, gender-identity, political affiliation, national origin, and disability status.

Highlights of Beatty Work on Civil Rights

  • Elected Vice Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, which is committed to ensuring that African Americans and other marginalized communities have full access to the American Dream.
  • Supports the Equality Act, to extend civil rights protections to LBGTQ individuals.
  • Sponsor of an Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution.
