This is it. This year we have a very real chance to pass a transgender-inclusive Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA). NCTE is calling on transgender people and allies to come to Washington, DC, on May 14 -15, 2007, for what is shaping up to be the largest lobby day in trans history. Will you be there? Will your friends?
For decades advocates have fought hard to write federal anti-discrimination and hate crime legislation that includes transgender people. Now is our shot. Please try to be here. Your voice is vital.
Protections for transgender people—for all LGBT people—are so very close to becoming the law of the land. But it won’t happen without your voice. So save your pennies. Bank your gas money. Schedule your vacation days. Book your flight. This is the mother of all Transgender Lobby Days.
May 15, 2007
NCTE Lobby Day
Of course, there is no cost to attend NCTE’s training on the 14th and Lobby Day visits on the 15th. We’ll be sending out information on local hotels and opportunities to take action before May. So watch your email.
