The purpose of this Community Meeting is to discuss the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) and what we can do as residents of Michigan to do our part in making sure it passes the US House of Representatives. Americans from all walks of life share the basic value that no one – including lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people – should face discrimination in the workplace. There is currently no clear federal law barring workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity, but in the coming months Congress can pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA). This bill would provide nationwide employment protections for LGBT people. http://www.facebook.com/events/831811700179113/
