Countless LGBT people have lost their livelihoods because our government has failed to take swift action on the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA).
* In 29 states, it’s still legal to fire a worker for being lesbian, gay or bisexual.
* And in 38 states, a person can be fired just for being transgender.
This is not acceptable and we won’t stand for it!
You have been a strong ally in our fight to pass ENDA and we need your help now.
Speak out now to end workplace discrimination:
Call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121. Ask to speak to your members of Congress and urge them to pass this landmark civil rights bill immediately. Tell them that you are a constituent and that you vote!
ENDA is being held up in committee by indifference and right-wing extremism. If we do not pass this bill by the November elections, we will have to start all over again next year in what will likely be a more conservative and hostile Congress.
In the meantime, LGBT people will continue to live in fear of losing their jobs — and the financial security of their families — simply because of who they are and whom they love.
We will not be denied our basic rights any longer. The time has come to demand our right to work free of harassment, prejudice and fear. And we need you to join us in sending a loud message to Congress that further delays on ENDA are unacceptable.
Call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and urge Congress to pass ENDA now.
Thanks for all you do to help move our community toward full equality.
