5 Things You Can Do TODAY to Help Pass ENDA

5 Things You Can Do TODAY to Help Pass ENDA

Many of you have been working for years to pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (H.R. 3017). This is important legislation that will make it illegal to discriminate against our loved ones because of their sexual orientation or gender identity in employment.

Most of you have taken action on ENDA in the past, but today, we urgently need your help again. Please take the time RIGHT NOW to do the following five simple things:

1. CALL - You can find your representative's phone number by checking out our Action Center. Once you have the number, call and say, "As a constituent and member of Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays - PFLAG - I am calling to ask the representative to pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act now." Remember to be polite, but firm.

2. E-MAIL - Access our e-mail action center here. Simply fill out your name and address and an e-mail will automatically be sent to your representatives.

3. SHARE - Forward this action alert to your friends and family. The more responses congress receives the better.

4. CHANGE - Use social media to spread the word. Change your Facebook status to say PASS ENDA NOW! For those of you on Twitter, tweet about passing ENDA today.

5. REPEAT - Even if you have called and e-mailed before, do it again!
Tomorrow, PFLAG will join leaders in Washington, D.C. to demand that Congress vote on ENDA immediately - help support PFLAG's efforts with your voices from the field by taking action right now.

For more information on what is happening with this important legislation read our media advisory and ENDA fact page.

Thank you for helping to more equality forward!
