Update: Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin's ENDA Testimony. The National Gay & Lesbian Task Force Action Fund submitted testimony to the U.S. House Committee on Education & Labor that spotlights the crucial need for passage of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which would prohibit workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation & gender identity. Task Force testimony includes preliminary data from a new groundbreaking survey on discrimination against transgender people in the United States. Data from this large-scale, first- of-its-kind survey show that discrimination in employment against transgender people is a nearly universal experience: 97 percent of the respondents reported being mistreated or harassed at work & nearly half (47 percent) said they had lost their jobs, were denied a promotion, or denied a job as a direct result of being transgender. The Task Force is partnering with the National Center for Transgender Equality on the survey.
