Fragrance Creators Association Applauds House Passage of H.R. 5, the Equality Act

The association is continuing its leadership to advance the bill, which would provide key anti-discrimination protections for LGBTQ Americans

PR Newswire

WASHINGTON, Feb. 25, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Fragrance Creators Association applauds the U.S. House of Representative's bipartisan passage of H.R. 5, the Equality Act, which aims to ban discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity with regard to employment, housing, and more. Continuing its leadership to advance equal opportunity for all, Fragrance Creators partnered with the National Association of Manufacturers to urge other industries to support affirmative, statutory non-discrimination protections for LGBTQ Americans, both in the workplace and in the community. As a result, 50 trade associations wrote to congressional leadership in favor of the Equality Act.

"We recognize the bipartisan support in Congress as well as vast, diverse support within industry on an important principle: ensuring equal opportunity for all Americans," said Farah K. Ahmed, President & CEO, Fragrance Creators. "Fragrance Creators is proud to take leadership in the industry, and we stand with the Biden Administration in its commitment to passage of the bill during its first 100 days."

"Fragrance Creators continues to exemplify responsible industry stewardship by leveraging its strong political and industry relationships to advance causes that are good for people, perfume and the planet," said Robert Weinstein, Ph.D., Chairman, Fragrance Creators Board of Directors, and President & CEO, Robertet USA.

On Feb. 19, 2021, the association released a statement in support of the reintroduction of the Equality Act, which it has publicly supported since 2019. Passed by the House of Representatives in 2019 with bipartisan support, the bill would amend several provisions of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to provide key protections for LGBTQ Americans with regard to employment, housing, credit, education, public spaces and services, federally funded programs, and jury service.
