The Human Rights Campaign released a statement against Barney Frank’s revamped Employment Non-Discrimination Act. Says President Joe Solmonese:
Since 2004, HRC has had in place a policy that supports only a fully inclusive version of ENDA and the Board of Directors voted to reaffirm that position. Therefore, we are not able to support, nor will we encourage Members of Congress to vote against, the newly introduced sexual orientation only bill. And will continue working with our allies in Congress to support a comprehensive, legislative strategy to achieve passage of a fully inclusive ENDA as quickly as possible.
So, they won’t support the bill, but they won’t press politicos to fight for equal rights. Way to ride that fence, guys.
