hrcI have to confess that this e-mail was the first I'd heard about this, but I'm glad that someone is protesting.Keep the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) transgender inclusive.PROTEST Human Rights Campaign in Sheridan Square November 20th at6:00 PM on the Transgender Day of Remembrance. �(See demands below.)As you know HRC liedto its members, donors, the transgender community and other LGBTorganizations who overwhelmingly supported the trans-inclusive ENDA orno ENDA at all. What's worse is at THE BEGINNING of the debate, HRCtold committee members that is they voted AGAINST the inclusiveversion of ENDA but only supported the sexual orientation only ENDAthey would get a free pass and it wouldn't reflect on theirlegislative scorecard. Not only did HRC lie to the LGBT community andpress by claiming they were fighting to keep ENDA inclusive while theyhad been quietly telling congress-members and staff to just vote forthe non-inclusive bill since Sept, but last week they threatened ahandful of brave Democrats who were going to vote against the versionof ENDA that came to the floor unless transgender protection wasrestored. Now since we know Bush was going to veto whichever versionwas passed, this action would not delay ENDA being signed into law.HRC is now going to give a black mark on the 7 brave congress people,4 from NY Clarke, Nadler, Weiner & Vasquez, for doing HRC's job byraising the bar on equality.PROTEST in Sheridan Square November 20th at 6:00 PM on theTransgender Day of Remembrance. Aside from paying homage to SylviaRivera and Marsha Johnson, two transgender veterans of the StonewallRiots, HRC is having a Women's Networking event at the Stonewall Baracross the street. We will also be protesting HRC and demanding,1) the 7 Congress people who voted against ENDA to raise the bar onEquality should get the highest score possible for their vote.2) HRC set a goal of 10% transgender representation for it's nationalboard and all local steering committees.3) HRC Executive Director Joe Solomnese MUST RESIGN!Solomnese has lied to the community and the straight and LGBT press.He has been duplicitous. He has intentionally undermined the effortsof the majority of LGBT organizations working on ENDA. Joe Solomneseno longer has any credibility as a leader in the LGBT Community torepresent our needs. He is no longer a trustworthy person we can lookto as a leader. Joe Solomnese must resign from HRC.
