Politico has an article out detailing how Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner personally intervened to save President Obama’s LGBT employment protections. These protections make it illegal to fire an employee of a federal contractor because of his or her sexual orientation or gender identity. It also made it illegal to fire a federal civilian worker for gender identity. A full description of the law is available at Wikipedia.
I think we should make our voices heard by thanking them. You can thank President Trump at Whitehouse.gov.
You can also write to Ivanka and Jared by sending a letter or postcard to:
Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500
If you write, the White House recommends:
Please consider typing it on an 8 1/2 by 11 inch sheet of paper. If you hand-write your letter, please consider using pen and writing as neatly as possible.
Please include your return address on your letter as well as your envelope. If you have an email address, please consider including that as well.
These people stood up for us, saying thank you is the right thing to do.
