Hispanic caucus endorses ENDA

The Washington Blade reports that the Congressional Hispanic Caucus voted Wednesday to endorse the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, (ENDA), which would prohibit anti-LGBT bias in the workforce, as a result of a resolution proposed by Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-Calif.).

In a statement, Sanchez, vice chair of the caucus, called ENDA “an important, long overdue civil rights law.”

“Equality shouldn’t wait,” Sanchez said. “We need to break down the barriers of intolerance and bigotry that have kept too many talented people out of the workplace. The vast majority of Americans believe that job performance is what should determine whether you get hired, fired or promoted. It’s time for the House to pass ENDA and end workplace discrimination.”
