BLOG: We Stand with U.S. House Members Looking to Ban Discrimination


first_imgBLOG: We Stand with U.S. House Members Looking to Ban Discrimination Equality,  National Issues,  Non-discrimination,  The Blog The U.S. House passed a proposal Wednesday night to protect federal workers from being fired on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. Sponsored by Rep. Sean Maloney (D-N.Y.), the measure was approved 223-195.In April, Governor Tom Wolf signed non-discrimination executive orders in an effort to explicitly and decisively end discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity or expression in the executive branch of our state government.“Pennsylvania is open for business no matter who you are or whom you love.” — Governor WolfBut while these executive orders apply to commonwealth employees and employees of organizations with contracts or grants from the commonwealth, we still need to ensure the commonwealth extends protections statewide. Governor Wolf is committed to working with the legislature to pass a statewide non-discrimination bill that protects all Pennsylvanians, and encourages federal legislators to continue enacting measures to protect fundamental human rights.

Ashwell commented: “We had very good fight backs to get halves in two of the morning foursomes. That gave us momentum which we carried into the afternoon singles.”On the second day, against Germany, the team won all three foursomes before facing a stiff singles challenge. Four of the games went to the 18th and one to the 17th, but England proved the stronger finishers, winning four of the six singles. “It was a great afternoon, with excellent golf and some very tight matches,” said Ashwell.That result gave England a healthy lead going in to the final day’s play against Spain and they kept up the pressure.
