In 29 states there’s no state law to protect lesbian, gay, and bisexual employees from being fired – and 33 states lack state laws protecting transgender people. That's right, 33 states.
This leaves thousands of hardworking Americans at risk, with no job security, susceptible to the whims of a discriminatory boss.
It's time for equality everywhere – and that includes the workplace. A key Senate committee just passed the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) and now, the full Senate has a historic opportunity to tackle this issue once and for all – please send your message right now!
ENDA would offer simple workplace protections to millions all across the country -- the same protections straight people take for granted -- that they can't be fired for who they love.
As one of HRC's more than 1.5 million members and supporters, I urge you to do everything you can to help pass ENDA out of committee and onto the Senate floor for a vote. Once there, I hope to count on your support for full passage.
Giving workplace equality to ALL shouldn't be controversial or complicated. It's about basic fairness and economic opportunity, and I appreciate your support.
