PFLAG National Statement on ENDA's Passage Out of Senate HELP Committee

"Today we are one step closer to seeing our lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) loved ones protected in the workplace. Whether it is the opportunity to interview and be hired, retain a job, or be afforded the opportunity for a promotion, this first step towards passage of the inclusive Employment NonDiscrimination Act (ENDA) will ensure that our families are protected. We thank those Senators who worked so diligently to pass ENDA out of committee today, and look forward to working with our elected officials who believe in fairness to get this legislation passed when it comes to the Senate floor." 

- Jody Huckaby, Executive Direction, PFLAG National
