ATLANTA – Today Democratic Party of Georgia Chairwoman Nikema Williams released the following statement:
“Today’s decision by the Supreme Court is a long sought victory for LGBTQ Americans, made possible by the hard work of advocates over many years, including Georgia’s own Gerald Bostock, who was fired from his workplace for being gay. Thanks to Gerald and the advocates who brought this case forward, LGBTQ Americans no longer need to fear for their jobs simply for being who they are.
As we celebrate LGBTQ+ Pride this month, and observe millions marching in the streets calling for true justice for all, we must remember that today’s victory is the result of hard work by the activists and protesters, many of whom were LGBTQ people of color, who marched before us. The work ahead of us is still vast — but today’s decision affirms that every person deserves equal rights and equal treatment under the law, and we will fight until we make that true.
Georgia Democrats have and will continue to stand with LGBTQ Georgians, and all Georgians standing up and marching for justice. Today we celebrate, and tomorrow we keep up the fight.”
