Breaking: Supreme Court Lets Discrimination Continue…

http://www.equalityfederation.org/2018/01/msscotus/

The  Supreme Court has denied to review two cases that challenged Mississippi’s dangerously broad anti-LGBTQ law, HB 1523. 51The law, which opens the door for businesses to refuse service to LGBTQ people,  is based on three discriminatory beliefs:

  • marriage is only between a man and a woman;
  • sex should only take place in such a marriage;
  • and a person’s gender is determined at birth and cannot be altered

Lawmakers in your state and across the country are back to work, and we know that already some politicians have filed anti-LGBTQ legislation or are planning to file soon.

Fran Hutchins, Deputy Director, said, “It’s a shame the Supreme Court declined to law review challenges to this outrageous because it is the most extreme, sweeping anti-LGBTQ law in the country. LGBTQ Mississipians should be able to live and work free from harassment and discrimination so we are hopeful that when the courts do look closely at this law or similar laws they will land on the side of the constitution and the American promise of freedom and fairness for all.”

Make no mistake, Equality Federation is working hard to support our state-based leaders, from Equality Florida to Basic Rights Oregon, to fight back against every attempt to undermine equality!
