Let Congress Know You Care About ENDA!


On Tuesday, January 6th, Members of Congress raised their right hands and swore to uphold the Constitution as they began the new legislative session.

Let’s make sure the first thing they hear about is the importance of an Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) that protects all lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.

In D.C., make their phones ring!

Call the Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and have them connect you to your Representative (based on your zip code). Tell them: “I am a constituent and I would like you to please tell Representative _______ that I strongly support the Employment Non-Discrimination Act that would ban discrimination against all lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.”

Then, call back and leave messages with your two Senators, too!

At home, set up a visit!

Request an in-person meeting for you and other community members with your two Senators and your Representative (or their staffs) in their home district offices. You can call the district offices to request these meetings but they often want you to fax a meeting request. To find contact information for district offices, go to www.senate.gov and www.house.gov.

Sample meeting request letters, and other talking points and resources for your meetings, are available from our United ENDA coalition partners:
