Statement on passage of ENDA by U.S. Rep. Jim McDermott (D-WA)
Statement on passage of ENDA by U.S. Rep. Jim McDermott (D-WA)
"America is a great nation but it is a work in progress. And we still have work to do when it comes to protecting the rights of every American. No one understands that better than Representative Barney Frank, my friend and colleague from Massachusetts. With Barney's leadership, the House passed the Employment Non-Discrimination Act. ENDA is a clear statement that we will protect and defend the rights of Americans in the work place.

"Is there more work to be done? Yes. But ENDA is an historic milestone and we should be proud of what we have achieved so far.

"As far as I am concerned, the issue comes down to one simple, declarative sentence: Your sexual orientation and lifestyle is your business, not your employer's business. I proudly stand shoulder to shoulder with Representative Barney Frank and my constituents in Seattle in strong and unwavering support of ENDA.

"A chance at the American Dream should apply to every American. Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual people hope, dream, love and care as we all do. They deserve nothing less than a full measure of justice and equality from their country. So do Transgender Americans and we have more work to do to extend ENDA protections to them.

"While we have made progress with ENDA neither Rep. Barney Frank, nor I, nor my constituents will rest until we can declare with conviction that all Americans are created equal."
