Our allies at the National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR) and the Task Force have asked us to promote their phonebanking to support passage of ENDA, the federal Employment Non-Discrimination Act. This important legislation will help trans people across the country, please support them if you can! Here is more info from NCLR:
In most of the U.S., you can get fired from your job simply for being Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual or Transgender. The Employment Non-Discrimination Act will change this. But we need your help. This bill is within weeks of a vote in the House of Representatives, and it is crucial that we act now.
The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and the National Center for Lesbian Rights co-host phone banks on Tuesday and Wednesday nights to mobilize supporters in key Congressional districts. These phone calls are vital to convince undecided legislators to pass ENDA now!
