This afternoon, House Democrats heard from outside experts who are leaders in their fields, including areas such as entrepreneurship, information technology, workforce development, and other areas critical to our long-term economic competitiveness and job growth. They discussed many of the issues raised by Members during the first “Make It In America: What’s Next?” hearing. Read my full opening remarks: http://1.usa.gov/1LUS4Kk 4d

repstenyhoyer Today is #BlackWomenEqualPay Day, which marks how far into the year an African American woman must work to earn as much as a man earned the previous year. It is time to end this unacceptable disparity once and for all. “Like” if you support securing #EqualPay for equal work. 4d

repstenyhoyer Today I joined Senator Orrin Hatch, former Senators Tom Harkin and Bob Dole, former Rep. Steve Bartlett, and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) Commissioner Chai Feldblum at a press conference today celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, which was signed into law on July 26, 1990. The ADA’s 25th anniversary is a milestone anniversary in the history of civil rights, and I was proud to join with my friends and colleagues who played a leading role in enacting it. http://1.usa.gov/1fB4ZTM 5d

repstenyhoyer This Sunday marks twenty-five years since President George H. W. Bush signed the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) into law. The ADA has since been recognized as one of the most important civil rights victories in our nation’s history, ending generations of exclusion and dependency for tens of millions of Americans with differing abilities and opening doors of opportunity to the workplace, marketplace, schools, and public transportation. Sponsoring the ADA in the House was one of the proudest accomplishments of my time in public service, and I was honored to work with legislators like Ted Kennedy, Tony Coelho, Tom Harkin, Bob Dole, Steve Bartlett, and Orrin Hatch to move the ADA successfully through Congress so it could be signed into law in one of the great bipartisan successes of our time. As we mark this milestone anniversary, let us rededicate ourselves to the task of securing full equality, access, and opportunity for those with differing abilities and continue working to ensure that every American can contribute to their fullest measure in our shared project of a better future for our nation and the world. #ADA25 1w

repstenyhoyer I was proud to join in introducing the Equality Act today. Our nation was founded on the principle that all are created equal and ought to have an equal chance to work hard and achieve the American Dream. No one should ever be fired or a victim of discrimination in the workplace because of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. Neither should any American be denied housing, health care, educational opportunities, or other services for those same reasons. #EqualityForward http://1.usa.gov/1ek0c8e 1w
