Content

This is a debugging block

The Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) outlaws workplace discrimination on the basis of race, skin color, religion, sex, and national origin. The ENDA bill introduced in congress would extend this law to include sexual orientation and gender identity, making it illegal to refuse to hire or promote, fire, or harass an employee based on these qualities.

GLAAD is participating in a series of ENDA Situation Rooms to discuss the efforts to pass fully inclusive employement nondiscrimination.
