ENDA Petition

Posted by – March 29, 2010

Sign the petition to Speaker Nancy Pelosi from the Courage Campaign and GetEQUAL.

Dear Speaker Nancy Pelosi –

With health care legislation passing, now is the time to institute workplace protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people by passing the Employment Non-Discrimination Act. Rep. Tammy Baldwin says she believes that we have the votes to pass ENDA, and Rep. George Miller has said the bill is ready to come out of committee now that the health care bill has passed. As Speaker of the House of Representatives, we call on you to act boldly and decisively and bring ENDA to the floor for a vote now.

    Do we accept the compromised position we trans have been placed in (non-inclusion) to promote a half-way victory (for teh ghey (with the caveat that I identify as lesbian)) with hopes that our plight will be recognized later? I have heard (gotta love that phrase) that there is possible language restricting bathroom use to those properly documented in the “correct” sex. Do you know anything about that Helen?
    In Washington State we have a non-discrimination law already which forbids employment discrimination, but as I’ve said before, that means they say “you’re not a good fit for the company” instead of “you’re trans, and that makes us uncomfortable”. Hollow victory when you can’t legislate honesty.
