Gordon Irwin signed Urge Senators Alexander and Corker to speak up for LGBTQ people when the next Supreme Court justice is appointed 2018-07-10 12:49:53 -0500All Americans have the same civil liberties under the law. We are now doing the best to meet this most American value guaranteed under the constitution. For too long black, Native American, women, and LGBTQ Americans were not recognized as equal even by authors of the constitution; some were kept in slavery and others deprived of their property. We can’t go back! The next Supreme Court Justice must recognize individual human liberties for all people.

Senator Alexander and Senator Corker:
When the President announces his choice to replace Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, we urge you to speak up for the rights of LGBTQ people. It is vitally important that members of the Supreme Court support the principle of "equal protection" and that Justice Kennedy's successor uphold the existing rights of LGBTQ people and oppose discrimination against LGBTQ people. We respectfully ask you to raise these concerns publicly and not to vote for any nominee who supports discrimination.
