ENDA clears cloture vote

The Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) today cleared a cloture vote in the U.S. Senate 61-30. The final vote is expected as early as this week. We need to keep the pressure up as the vote nears, so take action today and urge your senators to vote yes!

Statement by Rea Carey, Executive Director, National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Action Fund:

We’re now one step closer to achieving employment protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. This vote clears a critical hurdle in the advancement of this historic piece of legislation — the Employment Non-Discrimination Act. We call upon all senators to stand with the majority of Americans who support the basic principle that everyone should have access to the American Dream, free from discrimination because of who they are or who they love. We urge the senators to vote for ENDA when it reaches the floor for a final vote.
