While the Supreme Court ruled today that it is illegal to fire an employee based on sexual orientation or gender identity, systemic discrimination is far from over.

In a nutshell: Last week, the Trump Administration rolled back protections against discrimination in healthcare and put the well-being of transgender individuals, women, and people with limited English proficiency in jeopardy.

Take action: Use our easy email service to tell your senators to support the bipartisan Equality Act that amends civil rights laws to include gender identity and sexual orientation!
