U.S Supreme Court Rules Civil Rights Law Protects LGBTQ Workers
Us Helping Us, People Into Living, Inc. is thrilled to hear the US Supreme Court, in a 6-3 decision, recognizes the rights of LGBTQ citizens in the workplace. For far too long, employment discrimination has been rampant throughout the country, devastating lives and livelihoods. Today, the country has taken an important step toward equality.
Us Helping Us applauds the Supreme Court’s decision and hopes this landmark decision will be a turning point across the country for all citizens to be treated equally.
“June 15, 2020 will be remembered as a critical day for LGBTQ citizens in our on-going struggle for equality. For the US Supreme Court to make this ruling should provide hope for us all that our critical work is making a difference,” said DeMarc A. Hickson, PhD, Executive Director of Us Helping Us, People Into Living, Inc.
