Members of GetEQUAL, One Struggle One Fight, and Pride at Work disrupted a debate Wednesday night in California between Rep. George Miller and his Republican opponent Rick Tubbs to demand action on the Employment Non-Discrimination Act.
According to Karen Ocamb at LGBT POV, "The protesters walked to the front of the debate area holding a sign reading: 'Employment Non Discrimination Act Now.' They want Miller, chair of the U.S. House Education and Labor committee (seen here with the white hair in between the signs), to keep a promise he made to pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) before Congress recesses for the November, midterm elections."
Activists are eager to see ENDA passed before January, when the new Congress could be sworn in without Democratic majorities in both houses, depending on the outcome of the November elections.
LGBT POV reports that R. Clark Cooper, the new executive director of the Log Cabin Republicans, has spoken with Republican leadership about ENDA and found no plans on their part to move the bill.
According to Politico, on Thursday, "The group GetEQUAL plans to protest Pelosi and Miller in the Castro. Read more on that protest here.
