Statement from The Center: DOJ position on Workplace Discrimination

Today the United States Department of Justice argued in court that federal civil rights law does not protect employees from discrimination based on sexual orientation. Coming just a day after the President of the United States declared that transgender individuals were not suited to serve in the United States military, this is a clear slap in the face to every member of the LGBT community.

We believe society should be moving forward, not backward, and we demand that the administration reverse this misguided decision. How can you support the transgender community? Contact the chair and ranking members of the Senate and House Committee on Armed Services and demand that they take action to stop Trump’s Ban on Transgender Military Service. Suggested language: I strongly oppose any ban on transgender individuals from serving in our military. Our transgender service [...]
