Demand EEOC pursue LGBT job discrimination cases

EEOCJOBS.png

On January 27, Slate reported that the EEOC may withdraw from a case involving job discrimination against Amiee Stephens, a transgender woman.  New Commission chair Victoria Lipnic said "Administration-related changes" were the reason. 

TAKE ACTION!

1. Send your own email to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission at info@eeoc.gov and urge the Commission to continue pursuing cases of LGBT job discrimination.

2. Sign the petition.  If we reach or exceed 1000 signatures, we will deliver them to the Nashville EEOC office.

Dear Commissioners,

We urge you to continue viewing job discrimination against gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people as sex discrimination under Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.  In particular, you must continue to pursue the case of Amiee Stephens and other cases like it. 

Your own report indicates there were 1768 charges of anti-LGBT job discrimination in 2016.  In many states, there are no explicit protections for LGBT workers.  Without your efforts, LGBT people are often defenseless against job discrimination.  You must continue to pursue these cases.

Thank you for considering our views.

    LGBT people have been horrendously discriminated against for centuries. Now that society is finally realizing we are normal but different and deserve the same civil rights as other minorities, Trump is doing everything he can totake away those rights. Just like other minorities we deserve the same dignity, respect and rights as anyone else. Trump seems to want to erase America’s diversity. Preserve this diversity by ruling on Amiee Stephens’ case in favor of Ms. Stephens. She is entitled to justice like every other U.S. citizen.

    Gender is not nearly as simple as a lot of folks want to think it is, and one of the kindest, most supportive, brightest people I know is a trans man. God makes us lots of different ways, and God loves us all.
