Protect LGBTQ+ Workers: A Supreme Court Briefing

When: Tuesday, May 26, 2020 @ 5 PM PT (8 PM ET)

Livestream: https://www.facebook.com/wedemandjusticenow/

Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/4815900783594/WN_TA0jcw9WSQiL1XNkQSoy7A

Soon, the Supreme Court will decide whether to take away federal protection from millions of LGBTQ+ Americans and allow them to be fired from their jobs because of whom they love or how they identify. Over half of all LGBTQ+ Americans live in states where state law doesn’t protect them against workplace discrimination, so their only safeguard is the federal Civil Rights Act. Now, the Supreme Court could strip them of that essential protection.

As we await the Supreme Court’s decision, join the National Center for Transgender Equality, Lambda Legal, National Women’s Law Center, ACLU of Michigan, CPD Action, and Demand Justice for a conversation, moderated by Slate’s Mark Joseph Stern, about what’s at stake for LGBTQ+ Americans and how we can act to advance equality.

This conversation is the fourth in a series of digital roundtables about the many ways the Republican Supreme Court majority is threatening to upend life for hundreds-of-millions of Americans. This series brings together policy experts, elected officials, and activists on the front-lines to explain what's at stake and what we can do to fight back, even from our couches.

This briefing is brought to you by
