The organizations partnered to submit an Amicus Curiae Brief in cases that could take away federal protections for transgender and gay, lesbian and bisexual people 

  

WASHINGTON, D.C. —  Today Family Equality, The Trevor Project, and PFLAG National submitted an Amicus Brief in support of employees in three critically-important LGBTQ employment discrimination cases that will be considered by the U.S. Supreme Court in the 2019-2020 term. The employers in these cases are asking the Supreme Court to rule that it is legal under federal law to fire workers because they are LGBTQ — a decision that would be a devastating roll-back of federal civil rights protections for transgender and gay, lesbian, and bisexual Americans, and would run counter to federal law established in Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Wade and more at stake than ever.
