On May 18th many local LGBT groups and people held a protest in front of the Federal building in San Francisco to rally and urge community members to contact their representatives and congress men or women and urge them to do their part and get ENDA passed.
ENDA stands for the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, and if enacted it would ban discrimination in the workplace when it is based on sexual orientation and gender identity. It would also make it illegal for employers, to refuse to hire or fire people based on their sexual orientation or gender identity.
Currently it’s legal in many states in the US to discriminate against LGBT people, and right now there are no Federal laws that protect them in the workplace.
