GetEQUAL, who has been making lots of news for their civil disobedience over promoting the passage of ENDA and repealing DADT, has called for a protest of the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (IIABA) conference taking place in Washington, D.C. on Thursday April 14. The National IIABA Conference—one of the largest insurance gatherings of the year—will be keynoted by current Speaker of the House John Boehner.
The group is targeting the conference to put pressure on the discriminatory practices of one of the conference’s member companies, American National Property and Casualty (ANPAC). After more than seven months, ANPAC—a company based in Springfield, Missouri—still refuses to pay out the homeowner’s policy of a lesbian couple whose house was destroyed in a hate-fueled, arson fire over Labor Day weekend last year.
Click here to sign the petition to demand that the ANPAC pay the lesbian couples the just and appropriate amount to cover their destroyed home.
