Action Alert: End Discrimination in the Workplace (


End Discrimination in the Workplace

Dear hwrc,

In 29 states, it's still legal to fire someone because they're gay.

As a result, thousands of hardworking lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans have lost their livelihoods simply because of who they are.

But now, for the first time, we have the chance to end this unacceptable discrimination.

Just this month, the Senate has introduced the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which would make it illegal to fire, refuse to hire, or refuse to promote employees simply based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

President Obama supports a fully-inclusive ENDA, but there are opponents of gay rights on Capitol Hill that will fight to preserve discrimination. To overcome this opposition, the Human Rights Campaign, one of our partners and a leading organization fighting for equality for all Americans, needs your help.

Stand for equality by asking your senators to support ENDA and end workplace discrimination today >

We all know how tough the economy is these days. People across the country are struggling to find and keep jobs, pay their kids' medical bills and put food on the table. For LGBT Americans, however, there's also the very real threat that they could lose their jobs simply because of who they are.

Right now, we have an opportunity, like never before, to make sure this kind of discrimination is no longer legal.

Tell your senators that even one more job lost to prejudice is too many.

Thanks for your voice in the fight for equality,

- The Team
