Update On United ENDA Campaign

The work on behalf of a fully inclusive Employment Non Discrimination Act (ENDA, HR2015) is growing steadily. Today, members of P-FLAG and students from across the country who attend D.C. area colleges, are holding a joint Lobby Day to meet with members of the House on behalf of the fully inclusive ENDA.

The coalition of groups who have signed onto the United ENDA campaign also continues to grow. There are now 282 groups, representing at least 2 million people. The state groups alone, including the Tennessee Transgender Political Coalition, have combined for nearly 160,000 Action Alerts which have produced at least 15,000 e-mails to Members of Congress. This represents a true outpouring of grass roots support.

The United ENDA coalition has also been joined recently by several labor unions which support equal access to the workplace for all Americans. There is a lot of amazing work being done by people across this country on behalf of all lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people.

The Tennessee Transgender Political Coalition also wishes to reiterate our special thanks to Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin (D-Wisconsin). She is an original sponsor of HR2015 and is standing strong with the United ENDA campaign on behalf of transgender people.
