"A liberating moment": LGBQ&T discrimination and the Supreme Court
In June, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that discrimination in the workplace against LGBQ&T people is a form of sex discrimination. What does the ruling mean for people in Pennsylvania? And what is the additional work that needs to be done to be sure that prohibitions on discrimination are comprehensive? For this episode, we hear from Naiymah Sanchez, transgender justice coordinator for the ACLU of PA, and Mary Catherine Roper, deputy legal director of ACLU-PA. They talk about their reactions to the ruling and what it means; plus, Naiymah talks about her appreciation for Dr. Rachel Levine, Pennsylvania's Secretary of Health and the state's only trans statewide official, and Mary Catherine previews another LGBQ&T case that will be before the Supreme Court in its next session.
