Congresswoman Susan Davis Signs on as Original Cosponsor to ENDA




WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Susan Davis (CA-53) signed on as an original cosponsor to the bipartisan Employment-Non Discrimination Act (ENDA) to prohibit job discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

“Discrimination has no place in America,” said Davis, a senior member of the Education and the Workforce Committee. “Hiring and firing should be based on job ability and performance and not based on who you are or whom they love.”

ENDA would prohibit employers from firing, refusing to hire, or discriminating against employees or those seeking employment, on the basis of their perceived or actual sexual orientation or gender identity. Such protections are already in place for race, religion, gender, national origin, age, and disability.

Davis joined the bill’s sponsors, Reps. Jared Polis (D-CO) and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), as well as 156 of their House colleagues in introducing ENDA (H.R. 1755).
