Organizing for ENDA in the Granite State

During our time here in New Hampshire, we have collaborated with community, political, and religious leaders.
Today we proudly delivered over 2,000 postcards urging Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) to support the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA).
For the past few months we have enjoyed traveling throughout the Granite State and speaking with countless citizens, who cared enough about the LGBT community to make calls to Senator Ayotte, attended canvassing events and volunteered for phone banks.
We started our day in the State House in Concord and talked with many Republican lawmakers who are very supportive of ENDA.
We also walked through downtown and spoke to many small business owners who were willing to sign a letter of support.
We headed to Nashua to deliver the postcards and were met with a warm reception from Senator Ayotte's district staff.
We hope our postcards send a clear and resounding message to lawmakers: supporting LGBT nondiscrimination laws transcends partisan, ideological, and religious differences.
