The campaign to pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) has garnered prominent supporters from the Christian Methodist Episcopal (CME) and African Methodist Episcopal Churches (AME) in Augusta, Georgia.
Rev. Larry Fryer (pictured far right) and Rev. Curtis Andries (pictured far left) recently announced their support for ending workplace discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. As part of the Lenten Service on Wednesday, April 16, at the Hudson Memorial CME Church, I had the opportunity to join our local organizer Joey Traina and speak with congregants about workplace discrimination and the Americans for Workplace Opportunity campaign to pass ENDA through the U.S. House of Representatives.
It's heartening to find so many clergy who support ENDA as part of their call to promote social justice.
