“The Time To Act Is Now” On LGBT Job Bias Order, Liberal Groups Tell Obama

February 20, 2013

Liberal pressure is mounting on President Obama to sign an executive order banning federal contractors from discriminating against lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender employees — a move Obama has declined to take over the past year.
Led by the Human Rights Campaign, Freedom to Work and the American Civil Liberties Union, more than 50 organizations — from the AFL-CIO to the NAACP — sent a letter to Obama today asking him "to take an immediate step toward legal equality by signing [such] an executive order."
