EME Files Brief with U.S. Supreme Court Today

By EME Team

EQUAL MEANS EQUAL filed a brief on July 3rd with the U.S. Supreme Court in support of our LGBTQ+ allies who are fighting for civil rights equality in employment. Known as the Bostock case, the Court will decide whether the word sex, as used in civil rights laws, covers LGBTQ+ individuals.

Because the word sex is also used in the Equal Rights Amendment, the Court’s decision will affect the scope of protection afforded LGBTQ+ individuals when the Equal Rights Amendment is ratified. During this season of Pride, EME is proud to stand with our allies to demand fully equal treatment and protection of the law for ALL.

EME’s Wendy Murphy authored the brief, with help from her students at the Women’s and Children’s Advocacy Project at New England Law | Boston. Anyone interested in supporting EME’s brief can send a letter to the Court at: Supreme Court of the United States, 1 First Street, NE, Washington, DC 20543

With love and thanks
