Louisiana is not generally considered a liberal state, and its Senators are considered quite conservative. However, one of those Senators, Mary Landrieu, Landrieu.jpgis more likely than the other, David Vitter, to vote for ENDA, making Louisiana a very important state for ENDA.

There are also two Representatives in the House who are likely to vote for ENDA with a little encouragement.

Please call Senator Landrieu. Her vote is very, very important to ENDA.

If you have a little extra time, you can also contact the two Louisiana Representatives.

Contact info and more after the jump.
