ENDA seeks personal stories for media campaign


The Tennessee Transgender Political Coalition is encouraging people to complete a new survey that will shed more light on the Employment Non Discrimination Act. Their goal is to collect as many stories as possible for use in a comprehensive media campaign.

The United ENDA campaign has created a short online survey through which you can share your personal story about workplace discrimination based on your sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. You can access the survey here.

Currently, 12 states and more than 100 localities have LGBT-inclusive nondiscrimination protections, covering nearly 40 percent of Americans.  The State of Tennessee is not one of those states, but the Tennessee Board of Regents, University of Tennessee at Knoxville, Metro Nashville Public Schools, and in 2009, both Shelby County and Metro Nashville, have all adopted such policies for their employees.

The Tennessee Transgender Political Coalition (TTPC) is an organization designed to educate and advocate on behalf of transgender related legislation at the Federal, State and local levels. For more information or to make a donation, you can visit their website.
