Moderator of Metropolitan Community Churches

Calls All U.S. Congregations to Immediate Action

to Secure the Passage of ENDA

 

Today, as we mark the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia {IDAHO} and MCCers around the globe join in demonstrations, dialogues and prayer vigils seeking a world where discrimination and violence against LGBT people is a thing of the past, I call on our Churches and Congregants in the United States to join me in taking action to ensure the passage of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act {ENDA}.   

 

ENDA is a federally based effort to ensure that LGBT people enjoy the same  legal  protections against job discrimination as all other workers.   Too many of us are struggling too hard to maintain employment in a difficult economy, for anyone of us to have to worry about job loss simply because of gender identity or expression or sexual orientation.

 

If we don’t act to pass ENDA now, it will die in Congress for this session.  That is the simple truth.

 

Our calls can make a difference. 

 

I urge every MCCer and person of good will to call the U.S. Capitol switchboard at          202-224-3121 today!  All you have to do is give the operator your zip code and you will be connected to your U.S. Representative.  Once connected, make sure your Representative knows you are a constituent.  Then join me in saying:

 

Discrimination is a real problem that affects real people, like me.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people need basic job discrimination protections.

Members of Congress must prioritize the passage of ENDA NOW!

We can’t wait any longer!

 

Your call can make a difference.  Join me on Monday, May 17th in making sure that Congress acts immediately to pass ENDA.

 
Grace and Peace,

 

+Nancy
