Help us end LGBT discrimination on the job. Congress is poised
to introduce federal legislation outlawing LGBT discrimination in the workplace.
But we still need your help to persuade lawmakers in Washington that LGBT
job discrimination is a problem that demands immediate attention. Stories
of discrimination put a public face on the issue and help change opinion.
We need to hear from people who have been fired or refused a job because
of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
We're looking for people from all walks of
life and who have held all kinds of jobs: from fast food workers to brain surgeons.
Your stories will be used to lobby Congress and state legislatures to pass anti-discrimination laws.
Proof that you were fired or refused a job for being LGBT strengthens
your story, but the proof doesn't have to be in writing. It could be something
your boss said to you - before you were fired, as you were being fired or even
during the interview process when you first applied for the job.
