Here comes ENDA!

WHAT'S HAPPENING:

Representative Barney Frank, joined by Reps. Tammy Baldwin and Jared Polis, introduced an inclusive version of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which would extend the existing federal law prohibiting employment discrimination to protect people on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.

WHAT WE DO NEXT:

Call your U.S. Representative and ask him or her to cosponsor the Employment Non-Discrimination Act.

Dial the Capital Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 to be directly connected to your Representative.

(If you don’t know who your representative is you can find out here.)

Tell them:

I am a constituent and I would like you to please tell Representative _______ that I would like him/her to become a cosponsor of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act. ENDA would ban discrimination against all lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in the workplace. Can you tell me whether or not Representative _______ has cosponsored the bill?

Go. Do it. Now. Really. Just call.
