After two decades of campaigning, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) has finally passed through the Senate for the first time in history.
But House Speaker John Boehner and a few of his colleagues are refusing to let the bill come up for a vote, thereby standing in the way of progress on ending workplace discrimination.
Send a message to Speaker Boehner now and tell him to let the House vote on ENDA.
ENDA must move forward
Dear Speaker Boehner,
Your colleagues in the Senate made tremendous progress last week by passing the Employment Non-Discrimination Act for the first time ever.
As a supporter of the Human Rights Campaign, and as part of the 80% of fair-minded Americans who support LGBT workplace protections, I strongly urge you and your colleagues in the House leadership to cease your opposition to this legislation.Ten members of your party stood on the right side of history by backing this legislation in the Senate, and it's time you allow members of the House of Representatives to do the same -- if they so choose. ENDA will offer simple workplace protections to millions all across the country so that you can't be fired or barred from employment because of who you are or who you love.
Your support of this crucial legislation means so much to me and the majority of Americans who believe in workplace equality. Please make the right choice by allowing a House vote on ENDA.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
