ENDA

It's Do-or-Die Time for the Employment Non-Discrimination Act: Whip Count Now Under Way. Call your Rep right now at 202-224-3121 (for those who don't live in DC) to demand an inclusive ENDA with gender identity protections. If passed with gender identity included, the law will protect LGBT people from workplace discrimination.

Call Congress TODAY about ENDA

The fate of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) will be decided by YOU!

TODAY & TOMORROW CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVE!

The bill should be moving in the House shortly after Thanksgiving, but it’s critical that our elected officials hear from us TODAY to ensure that all LGBT people are protected from workplace discrimination once and for all.

Just follow these three steps:
1) Call the Capital Switchboard at 202.224.3121 and ask to speak to your representative. (If you’re not sure who your representative is, simply give the operator your zip code and they will connect you.)

2) Follow this script:

My name is _____ and I’m a proud FAITH VOICE in (your city, state). As a (your faith/spiritual identity) I am calling in support of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (H.R. 3017) to protect lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people from job discrimination. No one should have to fear losing their job simply because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. Please pass ENDA THIS year. Thank you for your time.

3) Go back to step 1 and call at least one of your senators — we need to make our voice for equality as loud as possible.

International Talk Like a Quaker Day

Friends, I am pleased to announce that Tenth Month 24 (10/24/09) will be the third annual International Talk Like a Quaker Day.

Basically, this is a day to use Plain Speech (thee/thy instead of you/your) and/or talk about Quaker principles, such as peace and equality.

I had no idea how popular this event would get when I first created it, so let's keep the Light shining!

Here are some examples:

ITLAQ Day is the 24th day of Tenth Month and it is Seventh Day (of the week). This day is also William Penn's birthday and United Nations Day.

Mind the Light.

Friend Obama, thy policy of increasing troop levels in Afghanistan is not in keeping with the Peace Testimony.

I have posed myself a query in the spirit of John Woolman and William Penn: where among my possessions and actions are the seeds of war and what I am doing to change that?


(PS- There is a Facebook page International Talk Like a Quaker Day!)
(PPS- For those who are wondering, I'm a Quaker Pagan or Quagan.)
