Rep. David Scott Celebrates One Year Anniversary of Bostock v. Clayton County

WASHINGTON ­­­– U.S. Representative David Scott (GA-13), chairman of the House Agriculture Committee, today issued the following statement to mark the first anniversary of the Supreme Court’s decision in Bostock v. Clayton County, Georgia that federal employment non-discrimination laws protect all LGBTQ employees:

“One year ago, in a watershed victory for equality, the Supreme Court affirmed that LGBTQ Americans are protected from workplace discrimination under federal law. Still, there remains more work to be done in our long march towards a more perfect union with equality for all.

“Each of us deserves the right to a life of equal dignity and the protections to live, work and thrive without fear of harassment or discrimination. It is now critical that Congress pass the Equality Act to deliver those protections for LGBTQ people in Georgia and across the nation, ensuring that all Americans can be authentically ourselves in every realm of our lives, regardless of who we are or whom we love.”
