Largest National Hispanic Civil Rights Group Calls On Obama To Issue Nondiscrimination Order | The National Council of La Raza (NCLR) — the largest national Hispanic civil rights and advocacy organization in the United States — has written a letter urging President Obama to reconsider his decision to put off an executive order prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity in federal employment. “The EO is important to millions of Hispanic LGBT community members,” Eric Rodriguez, the group’s Vice President, writes. “[The order] protects a group of people who have a long history of being marginalized and gives them hope. That is why we urge you to sign an EO on this matter as soon as possible.” Read the full letter here. LGBT activists also plan to launch a “We Can’t Wait” campaign to pressure Obama to issue the protections.
