PFLAG National Statement on Reintroduction of ENDA in Congress

Today, PFLAG National Executive Director Jody M. Huckaby made the following statement in regards to the reintroduction of The Employment Nondiscrimination Act (ENDA) in both the Senate and the House of Representatives:

“I have met countless lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people, and their family members, who have shared devastating stories of being fired, not hired, harassed, and passed over for advancement without regard to merit. That treatment would not be permissible if an inclusive ENDA were law. 
PFLAG members around the country urge Congress to end this injustice by passing an inclusive ENDA, so that LGBT people, their partners, parents, children, and families will not have to live in constant fear of losing their livelihoods.
It's time to end workplace discrimination for all Americans, including LGBT Americans, regardless of where they work, simply because of who they are or who they love.”
