Equal Justice Works Statement on Recent Supreme Court Decisions

/ Updates

The U.S. Supreme Court issued two major opinions this week in Bostock v. Clayton County and Department of Homeland Security v. Regents of Univ. of Cal. The Court ruled that LGBTQ+ people cannot be fired because of their sexual orientation or because they are transgender, and the Court overturned the Trump Administration’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

“These landmark decisions advance our nation’s promise of equal justice for all. Equal Justice Works will continue our ongoing effort to mobilize passionate public service leaders to advocate on behalf of those whose identity and contributions are wrongly devalued or discriminated against in our country.”

– David Stern, Equal Justice Works Executive Director
