To Nancy Pelosi, from one of the DC ENDA 4

This letter was written to Speaker Nancy Pelosi by Samantha Ames, a DC law student and GetEQUAL activist. Samantha was also one of the four arrested in DC (and six in San Francisco) on March 18th for occupying the Speaker’s office in an attempt to bring a floor vote for a transgender-inclusive Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA)

With ENDA passage and DADT repeal hanging by a thread, it may be that the only things that will keep the thread from breaking are the courage and tenacity of people like Samantha who are keeping these issues of fairness and equality in the spotlight.
