Seven in ten Americans and a majority of U.S. Senators agree: it's time to pass federal legislation that gives workplace protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people.
No one should lose their job for being who they are. But despite so many recent accomplishments for the LGBT community, there's no state law against firing or refusing to hire someone because they're lesbian, gay or bisexual in 29 states. If you're transgender, it's a whopping 32 states.
Send a message to Congress now: tell them to push for a House vote on ENDA.
Dear [Member of Congress],
A core American principle is that workers should be judged based on their ability to do the job and their performance. Last fall, the United States Senate, on a bipartisan basis endorsed that fundamental principle by passing the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA).
As a supporter of the Human Rights Campaign, and as part of the nearly 80% of fair-minded Americans who support workplace protections on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity, I strongly urge you to take action now to pass ENDA in the House.
Ten Republicans stood on the right side of history by backing this legislation in the Senate, and it's time for members of the House of Representatives to do the same.
ENDA will offer simple workplace protections to millions all across the country so that you can't be fired or barred from employment because of who you are or who you love.
