ACTION ALERT: Ask Reid & Ensign to Support ENDA!

This just in from The Center! An inclusive ENDA has been introduced in the Senate, and it stands a good chance of passage. However, we can't just expect it to pass. We must take action to ensure our Senators stand up for justice.

Here's the message in full:

Inclusive ENDA Introduced! Urge Reid and Ensign to Support This Crucial Legislation


Today, Senator Jeff Merkley (OR-D) joined by Senators Susan Collins (ME-R), and Edward M. Kennedy (MA-D) introduced the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) in an important show of bipartisan support. This bill, which would extend existing federal laws prohibiting employment discrimination to protect people on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity, is much needed and long overdue.

We have a good chance of passing this bill, but we need your help! President Obama has said that he is ready to sign this bill. All we need now is for the Senate to act.

It is essential that you contact your Senators and urge them to support this bill and ask them to become a co-sponsor. Becoming a co-sponsor shows other members of Congress that your Senator will stand in solidarity with our community, which helps build momentum for the bill's passage.

Take Action Now! Email your Senators below and ask them to co-sponsor ENDA!
