Would you really let this little kid’s mom get fired for being gay?

April 26, 2013

enda_letter_lr_300x281We asked people at the United for Marriage rally at the Supreme Court to write letters to their elected officials telling them how wrong it is that it’s legal to fire or refuse to hire people based on their sexual orientation or gender identity in more than half of the country.

A little boy named Joe wrote that his mom has a good job and that they need every dollar she can make, so he hopes that she’s never fired just for being gay. He asked his Congress member to pass ENDA so his mom wasn’t in danger of being fired just because she’s gay. Imagine a little kid having to worry about this sort of thing. Makes you sick. Makes you angry, doesn’t it?

ENDA, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, was introduced in the U.S. House and Senate  this week, and we want you to add your voice to Joe’s by asking your legislators to co-sponsor ENDA.

No one should have to come home and tell their kids that they can’t put supper on the table because they were fired for who they are or who they love. Being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender shouldn’t mean living in fear of losing your job for no reason.

Stand with Joe and his moms and working people all over the country. Take action today and tell your legislators that it’s time to do what’s right by co-sponsoring ENDA.

    This is outrageous! His mom could lose her job over something she can’t control!? Who do they think they are? That is beyond discrimination!!! I have e-mailed my Senator about ENDA, and was surprised to have received a response. There is hope for change, we just have to BE HEARD!!!
