Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR)

Senator Jeff Merkley (D-OR)  introduced a trans-inclusive version of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity/expression on the federal level. The bill has 37 co-sponsors, including Ohio’s Senator Sherrod Brown. I cannot find the details of the bill yet, but I will keep you updated. A similar bill was introduced in June by Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) in the House of Represenatitives (HR 2981). To contact your Senator to support ENDA, go here; for your Representative, here.
