APA works to advance LGBT workplace discrimination legislation
The Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee voted on July 10, to send the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) of 2013 (S. 815) to the full Senate for consideration. Leading up to the vote, APA undertook several actions that included:
- Submitting a letter of support for the legislation;
- Circulating a targeted alert to Alaska, North Carolina and Utah residents who are members of the Public Policy Advocacy Network (PPAN), asking them to urge Senators Murkowski, Burr and Hatch, respectively, to vote the bill out of committee and
- Circulating a PPAN alert, encouraging members to urge their Senators and Representatives to co-sponsor the legislation.
