LGBTQIA+ Community Support and Legal Action Fund

About

On June 15, 2020, the US Supreme Court ruled that it is illegal for employers to discriminate against employees based on their sexual orientation and gender. This recent victory highlights how we are still in the throes of fighting for who we are and who we love. The LGBTQIA+ Community Support and Legal Action Fund strives to support people affected by discrimination and advocates defending human rights. With the added strains of the pandemic and civil unrest throughout our country, it is crucial that we support these resources and advocacy groups to pave the way towards a brighter and more just future.
