My friend Phil Attey will have a cow if you don’t do your part to contact your representative by phone, message or in person this week about the need for an Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) and to cosponsor legislation ending the ridiculous “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” (DADT) policy.

ENDA will help protect LGBT people from workplace discrimination, and the National Center for Transgender Equality is one of the organizations pushing for it. And the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network has been a strong opponent against DADT for a long time. Follow the directions on the website links above to contact your representative and let them know how you feel about it, and what you think they should do for you.

Not everyone is a politics nerd, and if you’re not sure who your representative is, go here and plug in your state and zip code. Once you figure that out you can write or call them. The phone number for the Hill is (202) 224-3121. Going through the organization website links above will walk you through the process if you’d rather write.

They take phone calls and messages seriously, and they need to know how you feel on these topics. Call/write for ENDA on March 14-16, and do the same against DADT on Thursday.

If you can make it in person, you can join Kathy Griffin on Thursday from Noon to 1:30pm at Freedom Plaza, Between 13th and 14th St. NW and Pennsylvania and E Streets NW., in Washington DC.
