A far-right fringe will be out in force tomorrow during hearings about "Defending Marriage" and the Justice Department's decision to stop defending the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). Adding insult to injury, these hearings fall on Tax Day – a day on which legally married LGBT couples are reminded of their second-class status thanks to DOMA. The committee holding the hearings is home to some of the most extremist Congressmen in Washington. It's up to us to take them to task. Can you match the anti-gay statement or action with the committee member who made the remark?

In most states, it's 100 percent legal to fire or refuse to hire someone based solely on their sexual orientation or gender identity or expression. The Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) – the bill that would make workplace discrimination against LGBT people illegal – has just been re-introduced in Congress, and we need to build critical support for it starting right away. Tell your members of Congress to support ENDA now!
