Congress is Back! Tell Them to Pass ENDA Now!

Dear Friends and Families,

We ended 2009 with a postponed vote on ENDA (Employment Non-Discrimination Act) in the U.S. House of Representatives. It’s 2010 and Congress came back into session today. Let’s press the House hard to get this vote scheduled and pass ENDA now!

We’ve waited long enough. Call or e-mail today. ENDA can’t wait, and neither can we!

Call the U.S. Capitol switchboard: (202) 224-3121.
Give your zip code and ask to be connected to your Representative.

Below is a sample message to tell your representative:

My name is _____ and I'm a proud resident of (your city, state). I am calling in support of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (H.R. 3017), to protect lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people from job discrimination. LGBT people need to be able to earn a living to support their families and keep their children safe, strong and healthy. Please pass ENDA NOW! I can be reached at _______ (give your phone number and street address). Thank you.

2010 must be our year, and the moment is now. Congress must hear from real families. Please take action. Together, we will pass this bill, this year.

Pass this message along to friends and allies and ask them to call their Representatives today! If you're not sure who your Representative is, follow this link and find out.
