Rep. Susan Davis Statement on Supreme Court Ruling that Civil Rights Laws Protect LGBTQ Employees
Congresswoman Susan Davis (D-CA-53) released the following statement on the 6-3 ruling by the Supreme Court protecting LGBTQ employees from discrimination in the workplace.
“This ruling is a massive victory for equality, freedom, and the values on which our nation was founded. I’m glad to see that a majority of the court still believes in the Constitution. No one should lose their job based on who they are or who they love.
“In May of last year, the House passed the Equality Act to end LGBTQ discrimination not only at work but everywhere. This bill sits in the Senate. Leader McConnell should take a lesson from the Court and bring the Equality Act up for a vote in the Senate.”
