HRC Supporters Talk ENDA with Rep. Bill Owens (D-NY)

On April 25 HRC members Denise Rhone and Joanne Nugent had the chance to meet Congressman Owens in his office in Watertown to discuss his stance on the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (H.R. 3017). According to Denise:

We were aware that the Congressman is ok with "sexual orientation" but has a hard time with the "gender identity" part of the bill. I shared a couple of stories about friends that have lost their jobs in Central New York due to their gender identity and asked him to please remember my face and please make our country a place where all people can work without being fired because of who they are.

Well done Denise and Joanne! Thanks for all your leadership and courage!!! Please go to and take action now.
