Tzedek, Tzedek Tirdof: Fight for Equality in Marriage, the Military, and Employment
"Thus he shall judge the poor with equity and decide with justice for the lowly of the land. He shall strike down a land with the rod of his mouth and slay the wicked with the breath of his lips. Justice shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his waist." -Isaiah 11:4-5
As you may already know, Last Thursday, President Obama issued a directive to the Department of Health and Human Services to establish a rule that would prevent hospitals from denying visitation privileges to same-sex partners. This was a step toward fairness and equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Americans, but it falls short of his promises to fight for equality in marriage, the military, and employment. At the federal level, we need to repeal DOMA , DADT , and to pass ENDA . Join CBST and our friends at GetEQUAL in letting Obama know that Congress needs to make these changes happen !
