| June 17, 2021

“Agencies have a right to their religious beliefs, but they don’t have a right to a government contract, or to use taxpayer dollars to discriminate.

This decision makes it clear, taxpayer-funded agencies do not have a constitutional right to discriminate based on religious beliefs, but LGBTQ people should not have to rely on the Supreme Court year after year to affirm our equality and our dignity.

Laws like this send messages that make LGBTQ people less safe, including children. Every child needs to hear the message that you belong, sports are for everyone, and everyone wins when everyone is included.”
