FCDP Vice-Chair Connie Galloway Seeks to Have an
Impact on SCOTUS Decision Involving LGBTQ Rights
If you attended the 10/7/19 FCDP meeting, you learned about FCDP Vice-Chair Connie Galloway's wrongful termination from her employer of nearly 31 years, because of her sexual orientation. At that time, there was nothing that could be done about the firing, and even today, LGBTQ Georgians are vulnerable to discrimination because of a lack of protections at the state and federal level. We are so grateful for Connie's willingness to open up about this with all of us, because we know how painful a journey this has been for her. Please watch watch this video that sheds light on her story.
Thanks again, Connie, for your unceasing commitment to this fight. Fortunately, in June of 2020, SCOTUS ruled that Title VII's protections from workplace discrimination because of sex extended to LGBTQ employees. To read more about this landmark ruling, click here.
