You know you’ll probably wake up on the morning of November 4 exhausted from this election. What you may not know is that the justices of the U.S. Supreme Court will wake up and hear Fulton v Philadelphia -- a case that could have devastating effects for folks across the country. That’s why The LOFT is cosponsoring a Virtual Town Hall that evening to break everything down for you. We’ll even send you the recording if you miss it. RSVP here today to join us (link to www.OurDayInCourt.org).
Fulton, on its surface, is about whether a private foster care agency that receives public funds can use their religious beliefs to justify not serving LGBTQ+ people. Their refusal has already had a devastating impact on foster kids who are being denied a loving home.
But if the court rules in favor of a right to discriminate, it could allow any private agency that receives taxpayer-funding to provide government services -- such as adoption, food banks, homeless shelters, disaster relief and more -- to deny services to anyone they don’t approve of, including LGBTQ+, Jewish, Muslim, Mormon, single women, those previously divorced and more.
