Within the next three weeks, the Senate is expected to vote on the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, or ENDA, which would provide basic protections from employment discrimination to the nation’s 8 million lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender, or LGBT, workers. ENDA builds upon an enduring American value that workers should be judged on their merits and not their identity. It is past time for Congress to ensure basic fairness for every American, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.

Over the past several months, voters have witnessed the effects of gridlock and extreme partisanship on the nation and the federal government. Just two weeks after the government shutdown, ENDA provides Congress with the opportunity to unite behind common-sense, bipartisan legislation that maintains the support of a vast majority of the public.
