Don’t look away


One day this glorious flag will fly over a country that treats everyone the same. Why not today? Click and support if you can. Bigotry and prejudice should face consequences.

“In 29 states, you can be fired solely because you’re gay – and if you’re transgender, that’s 38 states. It’s outrageous, and it’s unacceptable.

The good news is that we are closer than ever to moving the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) and providing workplace protections for our entire community.
We have a President who supports a fully-inclusive ENDA. We have legislation in the House that already has more than 150 co-sponsors. And today, for the first time ever, we have a fully-inclusive bill in the Senate! We need your help to continue building support for ENDA on Capitol Hill. Send a message to your senators today – tell them to cosponsor ENDA!

Today, Senators Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Susan Collins (R-ME) and Edward Kennedy (D-MA) have introduced a fully-inclusive version of ENDA in the Senate that could put an end to this bitter injustice. And there’s more you can do to help.

Last week, HRC launched a national, grassroots campaign called “No Excuses” to demand action from Congress on key issues of equality, including ENDA. Designed to take advantage of the congressional summer recess, when members are in their local offices and meeting with constituents, “No Excuses” gives you the perfect opportunity to meet directly with lawmakers and push for federal legislative change. Sign up to get involved in the “No Excuses” campaign.

Thousands of hardworking lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans have lost their livelihoods simply because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. Right now, we have an opportunity, like never before, to make sure this kind of discrimination is no longer legal.

Your senators need to know that even one more job lost to prejudice is too many. Please, write them now!
