Peters Statement on Supreme Court Ruling Federal Employment Discrimination Law Protects LGBTQ+ Employees

DETROIT, MI U.S. Senator Gary Peters (MI) released the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that existing federal employment discrimination law protects LGBTQ+ employees:

“This is a historic day for LGBTQ+ rights and equality in this country. Nobody should face discrimination in the workplace or fear losing their job for who they are or who they love. Michigander Aimee Stephens did not live to see this day, but today we honor her and carry on this fight in her memory. While this is a major step forward we have a lot of work to do, including passing the Equality Act.”
