"I’m extremely concerned by President’s Trump’s nomination of Neil Gorsuch to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court. His judicial philosophy and record is as out of the mainstream as any nominee could be and the fact that he describes himself as the 'second coming of Antonin Scalia'—the most notoriously anti-LGBT Justice to ever serve on the nation’s highest court—should be alarming to all," said Los Angeles LGBT Center CEO Lorri L. Jean.
"We urge all fair-minded people to call their senators and urge them to conduct an extreme vetting of Judge Gorsuch. If he cannot unequivocally say that the Supreme Court’s decisions upholding the constitutional freedom and equality of LGBT people over the last 20 years are–and will–remain the law of the land, then he must be rejected.”
Please take the 100 Days and Me pledge to stay informed, be vigilant, and help fight federal policies and legislation that threaten the safety, health and well-being of LGBT people.
