It's Time to Pass ENDA!

Tell Congress to Pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act now!  On September 23rd, the House Education and Labor Committee will hold a hearing to discuss ENDA, the federal employment nondiscrimination law that would ban discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans.  It's time for Congress to pass ENDA!  Please take action to help us get the support we need.  We must tell our Representatives and Senators how important these protections are to LGBT people.

Contact your Representative and Senators and ask them to take swift action to pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act.  Do it today.  They need to hear that this bill is our top priority.

Call the U.S. Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121. Give the operator your zip code and ask to be connected to your Representative. Then, after leaving your message, hang up and call again to be connected to your two Senators.
