Earlier this summer, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) was introduced in both the House (H.R. 3017) and the Senate (S. 1584). This legislation will expand the scope of the existing federal law that prohibits employment discrimination to protect people on the basis of actual or perceived sexual orientation and gender identity. Protecting our LGBT loved ones in the workplace is much needed and long overdue.
We have a good chance of passing this bill into law and we need your help! President Obama has said that he is ready to sign this bill. All we need now is for Congress to take action! It is essential that you contact your Representatives and urge them to support this bill. Also, ask them to become a co-sponsor.
