The Bilerico Project and PFLAG have joined up to to send people who are currently unemployed because of job discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity to ENDA Lobby Day in Washington DC on March 16th. Lobbying to get ENDA passed is too important to be limited strictly to middle or upper class people who can afford a ticket.That’s why Bilerico and PFLAG offering scholarships to those who qualify.
But hurry! The deadline is tonight!
If you are from one of these eight states, and you are a currently-unemployed LGBT person who is unemployed because of job discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity, the Bilerico Project would like to help you get there.
* North Carolina
* North Dakota
* West Virginia
If you are from one of these crucial states, send an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org describing your situation and how your presence in DC for the lobby day would make a difference for your US Senator.
I cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate you, but I will make every effort to accommodate all those whose presence would make a difference. Please be as specific as possible in your email about how your presence would make a difference. Include your name, email address and telephone number. The subject line should read “DC LOBBY DAY ASSISTANCE REQUEST.” The deadline is tomorrow, March 5, 2010 at midnight Pacific.
As longtime readers of this blog know, I consider ENDA to be the single most important bit of LGBT rights legislation we may likely ever see.
Keep in mind that the deadline that the deadline is TONIGHT at midnight.
ENDA is excruciatingly important legislation. If passed, it would render things like this harmless. Even if you can’t attend as part of these scholarships, you can still donate. More on how to do that here.
