ENDA now? Or in 5 years?

Why is the Congresswoman from the gayest city in America blocking legislation that protects LGBT workers from workplace discrimination?

...Most LGBT workers have no protections from workplace discrimination, but legislation in Congress would address and end workplace discrimination. The Speaker of the House, Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, promised over and over again that she would schedule a vote but repeatedly broke these promises.

We know we won't have the votes again in at least five years.

Why is Pelosi killing ENDA? It is our work and our lives that are at stake. We demand ENDA not compromises.

Join us Tuesday, July 27th, 4PM, in front of her office in the Federal Building on 7th Street between Mission and Market!

Please wear your work clothes to the action. We will send the message that the livelihood of LGBT workers across the spectrum are at risk.

Sponsored by SF Pride at Work, One Struggle One Fight,
GetEqual, and the Harvey Milk LGBT Democratic Club.
