Call Speaker Nancy Pelosi TODAY and tell her why ENDA is important!
Please call Speaker Nancy Pelosi TODAY at 202-225-4965. Ask that the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, HR 3017, move to a vote. Be polite, but firm
The Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) keeps on getting delayed. Today is the day many LGBT/ally blogs and media outlets have orghanized a "blogswarm" and outrech to Speaker Nancy Pelosi to let her know how vital our community is protected from discrimination in the work place.
This week hundreds of transsexual and transgender people went to Captial Hill to talk to Congress to lobby/and or give thier personal stories of why ENDA matters to millions of Americans. I had the pleasure of going, and it was very inspiring to take action and let Congress know that we know our rights. My diary of the trip will be posted on this blog tomorrow.
If you have a blog or website, please post something today on this issue, If you are on Facebook or Twitter, please write a post expressing that we demand ENDA passes.
Here is the link to the organized "blogswarm": http://www.bilerico.com/2010/03/take_action_demand_lgbt_employment_rights_today.php
