Pass ENDA Now

      NYC, NY

H.R. 3017, the U.S. House version of ENDA, is ready to be sent to the U.S. House floor for a vote. It is imperative that this bill be voted on before mid-term elections. The numbers are good, but they should be better.

ENDA would mean the end to the disgraceful and disgusting practice of firing someone because they are gay. Job security should have nothing to do with sexual orientation.

Job = food. Job = housing. Job = health care. Job = self-esteem. Job = economic stimulus. Job = survival.

Rep. Nancy Pelosi has pledged to bring ENDA to a vote soon. Let's remind her, and her colleagues in Washington, that the time is now. Right now.
