#DecisionDay is coming!
On October 8, the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments for three cases: Altitude Express v. Zarda, Bostock v. Clayton County, GA, and R.G. & G.R. Harris Funeral Homes v. EEOC and Aimee Stephens. The outcome of these cases will determine whether workers who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender will continue to be protected under our nation's federal civil rights laws. The Court will issues its decision in spring 2020.
