CIVIL RIGHTS ORGANIZATIONS CALL ON EEOC TO WITHDRAW PROPOSED UPDATE UNDERMINING NON-DISCRIMINATION PROTECTIONS: The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, the Human Rights Campaign, Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, and the National Women’s Law Center submitted a comment on the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC) Proposed Updated Compliance Manual on Religious Discrimination, which would undermine employment protections for women, people of color, LGBTQ people, people who adhere to minority religious beliefs or are non-religious, and those from other minority populations.

Throughout her trailblazing tenure in Congress, Rep. Deb Haaland has been a powerful, passionate voice for equality. As @Interior Secretary, @RepDebHaaland would not only make history, she would make our government and our nation stronger.— Alphonso David (@AlphonsoDavid) December 17, 2020
