Unfortunately, for many Floridians, celebrating the Supreme Court's historic pro-equality ruling means taking a risk: LGBT people can still be fired in many parts of Florida just because of who they are. Despite the ruling on the freedom to marry, there are still no explicit federal laws that protect LGBT people from discrimination.
Being fired for getting married to the person you love -- can you imagine?
At SAVE, #TeamEquality is gearing up for the next phase in the fight for equality -- protecting our newly-won rights from those who would wish to take them away.
This includes securing passage of the Florida Competitive Workforce Act (which would protect LGBT Floridians from employment discrimination) and defeating several mean-spirited proposals to criminalize the transgender community.
From securing workplace nondiscrimination protections for all Floridians to defending the human rights of the transgender community -- the way forward is clear.
