Letter to Senate supporting the Employment Non-Discrimination Act
AAUW strongly supports the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (S.815). ENDA will prohibit employment discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. AAUW’s member-adopted 2013-15 Public Policy Program affirms our commitment to “vigorous protection of and full access to civil and constitutional rights” as well as “freedom in definition of family and guarantee of civil rights in all family structures.” ENDA will mandate that civil rights protections in the workplace – in both the public and private sectors – are extended to cover actual or perceived sexual orientation and gender identity.
