LGBTQ Protections at SCOTUS
This is a pivotal moment for our community, and for everyone who believes in fairness and equality.
Tuesday October 8, the U.S. Supreme Court heard three cases about LGBTQ employment discrimination. The Court’s ruling in these cases will determine whether LGBTQ people will be cut off from critical protections under federal law – not only in the workplace, but potentially in healthcare, housing, education and more.
The stakes couldn’t be higher. The Court must affirm that all LGBTQ people should be able to support themselves and their families without fear of discrimination or harassment at work.
Help spread the word about this critical moment and the hugely important stakes of this case.
Here’s some sample text you can personalize for social media:
- The U.S. Supreme Court heard three cases about LGBTQ employment discrimination. These cases will determine if LGBTQ people will be cut off from critical protections under federal law. The stakes couldn’t be higher. Tell your Senator to support the Equality Act.
- All LGBTQ people should be able to live, work, and go about our daily lives free from discrimination and harassment, no matter who we are, who we love, or where we live. The Supreme Court should affirm protections for LGBTQ people, including Aimee Stephens. https://www.out.com/commentary/2019/10/03/my-boss-fired-me-being-trans-i-took-it-supreme-court
- Discrimination is a real and urgent problem that disproportionally impacts the most vulnerable members of our community – LGBTQ people of color, especially Black and brown people, immigrants, and transgender people. With nondiscrimination cases in front of the Supreme Court this fall, we need the Equality Act to guarantee protections for people across the country.
