NGLCC Oct. 8, 2019
SCOTUS Rally & Conversation
On October 8, 2019, three cases are to be heard by SCOTUS, which will consider—and ultimately decide—if current sex discrimination laws protect LGBT people from workplace discrimination. The cases represent as momentous a moment for LGBT rights and equality at the Supreme Court as the Defense of Marriage Act and marriage equality rulings did in 2013 and 2015 respectively. The National LGBT Chamber of Commerce will join other LGBT organizations and corporate allies for a rally on the United States Supreme Court to defend LGBT workplace rights.

Allowing workers to bring their full selves to work ensures that they will continue to thrive, the companies they work for will thrive, and as a result, the American economy will thrive. For nearly 20 years, NGLCC has advocated for this type of inclusion in the workplace and we will always work with our partners toward the eradication of workplace and supply chain discrimination. NGLCC continues to assert the business case for protecting the millions of hard-working, tax-paying Americans who fuel the U.S. economy. This includes America’s estimated 1.4 million LGBT business owners who create tens of thousands of jobs and add over $1.7 trillion to the economy, per NGLCC’s ground-breaking America’s LGBT Economy Report.
