Responsive resolution for ENDA passes
Allison Woolbert, a member of the UU Congregation of Princeton, N.J., proposed a responsive resolution asking for support for the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, a bill now in Congress that would prevent discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. Woolbert, a transgender female, shared some of her own story about losing business clients because of her gender identity. “People don’t get fired for being straight,” she said. “Employment shouldn’t be based on who you are or who you love. It’s important that we have employment equality for all.”
The resolution passed by a wide majority.
