DNC Supports LGBTQ Workers

DNC Chair Tom Perez, DNC LGBTQ Caucus Chair Earl Fowlkes, and AFT President Randi Weingarten released the following statement as the U.S. Supreme Court hears oral arguments in Bostock v. Clayton County and R.G. & G.R. Harris Funeral Homes Inc. v. EEOC:

“No one should be denied the dignity of work because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. Every day, in states across the country, many LGBTQ workers still face the prospect of being fired simply because of who they are. The Democratic Party will not stand for such discrimination. As Donald Trump and his Republican allies try to roll back the progress we’ve made on LGBTQ rights, Democrats will keep fighting tooth and nail to expand opportunity and promote full equality for LGTBQ people in all aspects of our society.”
