Sen. Ted Kennedy is gone, but his arguments remain strong in the debate over ending workplace discrimination. As senators debate whether to pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, several have invoked the memory of the lion of the Senate, who throughout his career, was a champion for LGBT Americans. ENDA was at the forefront of his agenda, and it could pass the U.S. Senate this week for the first time, due in no small part to the decades-long struggle of the late senator. In honor of Kennedy's work, The Advocate has compiled a few quotes that illustrate the legislation's history as well as the rewards of hard work and hope.
