This evening, President Obama will host grassroots activists from the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities as part of the White House’s second commemoration of the LGBT Pride Month. Among them will be Laura Hart who has been an absolutely amazing and committed volunteer with the United ENDA coalition.
She has put in countless hours in meetings, doing computer work, and helping activists stay in touch with the latest actions and news as we work to pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA). In March, Laura was also honored as the Volunteer of the Year by the Mautner Project, an organization dedicated to the health of women who partner with women, including lesbian, bisexual and transgender women.
We’re very proud to work with Laura on ENDA on almost a daily basis and delighted that she and her guest, friend Alexandra Beninda, will be among those bringing a transgender presence to the White House tonight. Thanks, Laura, for all you do!
