The Honorable Peter Welch
Washington, D.C. 20515
I am writing to urge you to support the inclusion of transgender individuals, as well as gays and lesbians, in the bill designed to protect said persons from workplace discrimination.
Not including members of the transgender community sends the message that discrimination against some is still all right while others are worth of being protected by law. It’s true that members of the LGB (and T) community have waited decades for inclusion in workplace discrimination law but that inclusion should not come at the expense of others. Removal of transgender individuals from the bill is unacceptable. Please demand that transgender individuals be included in this important law.
