ODP on Historic LGBTQ+ SCOTUS Ruling
OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma Democratic Party issued the following statement on the historic U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling on extending workplace harassment protections:
“Today is a historic victory for the LGBTQ+ community. Today’s decision and progress could not have happened without the courageous actions of thousands of activists and the many fighting for equal rights,” stated ODP Chair, Alicia Andrews.
“But we still have work to do as Republicans continue to threaten and dismantle protections set under the Obama-Biden administration. Everyone has the right to a work environment free from harassment and discrimination. Democrats will continue to stand behind the LGBTQ+ community and all citizens who deserve equal rights and protections under the law. Still, we all must continue to be diligent by making our voices heard at the ballot box come November,” concluded Andrews.
