A letter written to Congress by a large corporation is one of the latest examples of Americas call to Congress to pass a fully inclusive ENDA. From the Washington Blade staff reports a letter from American Airlines.
"(We are) proud to express our strong support of federal workplace non-discrimination legislation that would extend basic job protections to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Americans. We are proud to have been the first major airline to implement same-sex domestic partner benefits, first to implement both sexual orientation and gender identity in our workplace non-discrimination policies, and first to have a recognized LGBT employee resource group –GLEAM," the press release said."
American Airlines is a corporate leader in the resurgent effort to remind Congress of the will American people by writing a letter in support of a fully inclusive ENDA. Please show your appreciation by emailing American Airlines customer relations and to fly American!
