Congressman Jim McDermott issues statement on ENDA

'I am an original cosponsor of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act - passing it is critical to moving our country closer to the goal of equal rights for all Americans. Beginning with the Civil Rights Act of 1964, we've recognized the importance of ending discrimination in the workplace, and the LGBT community deserves these basic protections. Recently, the LGBT community has seen a number of victories for equality. Just last December, the U.S. Congress repealed 'Don't Ask Don't Tell,' ending nearly 100 years of legal discrimination in our military. But, we still have a long way to go, and ENDA is one of many important bills that we must pass to guarantee all Americans the promise of freedom and equality.'
