They need to hear from you

Senator Troy Carter’s Louisiana Employment Non-Discrimination Act (LENDA – SB 155) that expands employment protections for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community will be heard tomorrow, Wednesday, May 17th at 8:00am in the Senate Labor and Industrial Relations Committee.

All hardworking people, including those in the LGBT community, should be treated fairly and equally by the laws of our state, and everyone should have the opportunity to earn a living and provide for themselves and their families. This is what updating the law is all about! Nobody should have to live in fear of being fired from their job for reasons that have nothing to do their job performance.

All people should have full lived equality in the Pelican State. Tell the Senate Labor and Industrial Relations Committee that you support LENDA and that protecting LGBT people from discrimination is the right thing to do.

With Equality,

SarahJane Guidry
