Some Good News

Glimpse of social change is starting to take root in our country.  As Black Lives Matter protests continue to push for police brutality reform, last week’s Supreme Court decisions defended the rights and liberties of impacted communities in the state and across our country.

The Supreme Court held in a 6-3 ruling last week that LGBTQ employees are protected by federal law against workplace discrimination, expanding sex-based discrimination to include sexual orientation and transgender status. And, the Supreme Court ruled to block a plan to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, commonly known as DACA, allowing hundreds of thousands of Dreamers, including 24,700 in our state, to avoid deportation and remain in the United States.

Both decisions offer hope and opportunity for parents, children, and families to celebrate their diversity and to realize their full potential.  CAA celebrates these landmark decisions and recognizes the work is not done.  We remain committed to work with lawmakers, community leaders, organizations, and families to support real immigration reform; including citizenship for DACA recipients, eradicate systemic racism, and dismantle discriminatory laws and practices. Diversity, equity, and most importantly inclusion make our communities better.  It will take all of us working together to collectively make real, sustainable change.
