When Rep. Ellison says, "Everybody counts, everybody matters," it's more than a slogan. He's a champion for underrepresented voices. The Minneapolis congressman helped author the Local Jobs for America Act to create 1 million public jobs. He has championed legislation to keep roofs over the heads of our most vulnerable citizens-seniors, disabled and low-income Americans. He supports the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, to protect employees from discrimination based on their real or perceived sexual orientation.
