Today's the Day

From NCTE:

ACTION ALERT on ENDA from the National Center for Transgender Equality

House committee meets Tuesday to decide whether or not a version of ENDA that cuts out protections for transgender people will advance in Congress.

Your Representative needs to hear from you TODAY.

The House Education and Labor Committee is holding a special meeting on Tuesday to discuss the strategy proposed by some House leaders to pass an ENDA that cuts out protections for transgender people. A committee vote on the bill is tentatively scheduled for Thursday.

A list of Committee members is available at http://edlabor.house.gov/about/members.shtml

Your Representative needs to hear from you TODAY about your opposition to the flawed strategy of advancing a bill that leaves transgender people behind.

Call your Representative right now at 202-224-3121, even if you have already called him/her already about this issue. Tell him/her to oppose advancing H.R. 3685, the bill that leaves transgender people behind. Tell him/her to push for a vote on H.R. 2015, the transgender-inclusive ENDA, instead.

Please call today. You have been asked to do a lot in the last few weeks to support transgender nondiscrimination protections. The action you take today might make the difference.

Minnesota Representative Kline's email rejects Minnesota residents email when those citizens are not in his second district. Therefore it is not possible to use email to contact him if you don't live in his district, even though you are a Minnesota resident.
