Logo Tonight: Foreman Discusses ENDA

NGLTF director Matt Foreman will appear on Logo tonight to discuss Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), transgender inclusion and the new Baldwin amendment.

Tune in tonight, Oct. 19, for an interview with CBS News on Logo's Jason Bellini and Matt Foreman streaming online at approximately 6:30 p.m. (EST) followed by a television segment on CBS/Logo News at approximately 7:57 p.m. Logo will air and stream a CBS News on Logo interview tonight with Matt Foreman, executive director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, Inc.

Foreman will discuss the grassroots activism shown in the formation and work of United ENDA, a coalition of more than 325 LGBT organizations representing more than 2 million people. United ENDA opposes any employment nondiscrimination bill that does not include transgender people.

United ENDA has been at the center of a recent controversy about transgender inclusion in the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which the House of Representatives is expected to consider early next week. A bill that does not include transgender protections has passed out of committee and is expected to come to a floor vote in the coming week. U.S. Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.) is expected to introduce an amendment to include transgender people in the bill and there is a current groundswell of support for this effort.
