The Tuesday Company is proud to support the work of organizations that uplift intersectional LGBTQ+ voices across the nation.
While we celebrate the Supreme Court’s landmark civil rights decision barring workplace discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity, we also recognize that this year’s Pride comes at a particularly challenging time in America.
As our nation wrestles with racial injustice and life during COVID-19, we are inspired by the continued work our partners do in support of the LGBTQ+ equality movement.
Equality Florida used Team to mobilize in favor of an updated human rights ordinance that includes sexual orientation and gender identity in Jacksonville, Florida. After a flurry of activism on Team, Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry publicly vowed to sign an updated ordinance into law once passed by Jacksonville City Council. On Monday Jun 8, Jacksonville City Council voted 15-4 in favor of passing the updated human rights ordinance, and Mayor Curry is expected to follow-through on his public promise to sign the bill into law.
We look forward to working with Equality Florida as it memorializes the Pulse tragedy through its Honor Them With Action campaign, and mobilizes pro-equality Floridians ahead of the 2020 general election.
The Human Rights Campaign uses Team to amplify the voices of 57 million Equality Voters across the nation. By organizing on behalf of Black Lives Matter, by creating voting plans to support pro-equality candidates, and by building powerful digital communities through virtual Pride events, HRC has shown that, even in the height of a global pandemic, pro-equality citizens can come together to build capacity, create change, and feel proud.
As Pride month continues and as the 2020 election nears, we look forward to our ongoing work with Equality Florida and the Human Rights Campaign as each organization builds a more inclusive future. It’s been our honor for Team to play a meaningful role in advancing human rights and equality in America.
