The House's Harassment Training Doesn't Mention Sexual Orientation Or Gender Identity

According to BuzzFeed News more than 50 House Democrats will send a letter to Speaker Paul Ryan on Thursday asking why the House’s new sexual harassment and discrimination training leaves out issues of sexual orientation and gender identity.

In a letter to Ryan, members claim they were told that sexual orientation and gender identity were purposely left out of the training, which is mandatory for members and staff.

The training came about as the House sought to update the way sexual harassment is dealt with in Capitol Hill.
