After Hearing Marriage Equality at the Supreme Court

Marriage Rights are Employee Rights

Oral arguments in the Supreme Court of the United States for both Hollingsworth vs. Perry and United States vs. Windsor have put LGBT rights advocates in the spotlight. While responses from the Supreme Court justices have not lead to any definitive predictions for the outcomes of Hollingsworth or Windsor, we know that history is on the side of equality for all. We also know that marriage rights are employee rights; more than three hundred top corporations and employers agreed with us when we filed an amicus brief in Windsor last month.

Ways to Get Involved

  • Start a conversation. Invite friends, family members, and colleagues to learn about LGBT issues and discuss equality concerns on Facebook and Twitter.
  • Share your story. Write, record, or simply speak out about your experience as LGBT or allied. Paste your story into Out & Equal at Work: From Closet to Corner Office, and give copies to the important people in your life.
  • Donate. No movement advances without the help of many hands, and whatever you contribute is vital to our success.

With your commitment to support equality, we can maintain the momentum we have gained both in and out of the office.
