Protect LGBT workers! Pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act Today!

Victory! The creator of this petition declared the campaign a success. You can still sign the petition to show support.

Put a stop to employment discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. Pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act!

Why is this important?

My name is Brad and I live in Seattle, Washington. Here in Washington State we have laws that protect Lesbian, Gay, Bi, and Transgender people from workplace discrimination. However, In 29 other states, including my home state of Tennessee, people are fired everyday simply because of how they identify or who they love. In Congress the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) has been proposed every year since 2007, but for nearly 7 years now Congress has failed to act. It’s time to put an end to workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

Currently, there is a bill in both houses of Congress, and it's already out of committee and ready for a vote in the Senate.

That's where you come in! Not every bill actually makes it to the Senate floor for a vote, but with your help, we can demand that this bill gets a vote. Please stand with me and millions of LGBT Americans in asking Congress to pass the Senate Bill S. 815, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act today.

Great News! The Senate Listened, and passed the Employment Nondiscrimination Act on November 7th, 2013.
