Tell Congress: Stand Up to Discrimination; Pass ENDA Now!
Members of Congress:
Stand with common sense, not anti-gay extremists -- support the passage of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA).
It’s way past time for Congress to enact basic workplace protections that shield LGBT Americans from employment discrimination. It’s illegal to fire someone because of race, religion, national origin, disability, age or gender but currently, employment discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity is not prohibited by federal law.
Although much progress has been made, LGBT Americans remain widely discriminated against. 29 states have no laws prohibiting employment discrimination based on sexual orientation, and 33 states have none that do so based on gender identity.
ENDA is a very basic, commonsense measure that would protect LGBT Americans against the very real discrimination many of them face in the workplace -- one that the public overwhelmingly supports.
Please support ENDA -- H.R. 1755/S. 815 -- and do everything in your power to move it to final passage this year.
