About This Ad

LGBT Americans know better than most that the Supreme Court can have a huge impact on our lives. Just last year the court made the right to marry the law of the land. But we're not done. We're not done. There's still plenty at stake for the LGBT community that could be decided by the Court. It's still legal for private employers to fire someone for being gay in 28 states and for being trans in 30 states. Just recently a federal judge ruled that a transgender student was not protected against discrimination at his school under Title Nine of the Civil Rights Act. Another judge ruled that sexual orientation was not protected by current employment discrimination law under Title Seven. All of these issues and more could make their way to the Supreme Court in the coming years. That's why it's so critical for our community that President Obama's nominees are confirmed by the Senate. Whoever President Obama appoints could provide the critical vote on legislation impacting our lives.
