Equality Act faces uncertain future in Senate


On Friday, President Biden once again urged Congress to pass the Equality Act, which has hit a roadblock in the Senate. The landmark legislation would amend the 1964 Civil Rights Act and extend federal protections to LGBTQ+ Americans. Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI) and Rep. Marie Newman (D-IL) joined NBC’s Joshua Johnson to discuss where the bill stands and their own personal connections to Pride.
