City Council’s Reaction to Supreme Court LGBTQ Discrimination Case

Jun 30, 2023

City Council’s Reaction to Supreme Court LGBTQ Discrimination Case

Cleveland City Council is appalled by the Supreme Court’s ruling that now allows businesses to discriminate against people based on their sexual orientation. It’s even more shameful that the Supreme Court would release this ruling on the final day of Pride Month.


This week’s Supreme Court rulings will have a long-lasting, and profoundly negative impact on people of color, young people and families, and LGBTQIA+ people. It is unfortunate that the Supreme Court has repeatedly demonstrated its opposition to supporting and protecting the rights of Americans of varying backgrounds.


Cleveland City Council is proud to have passed a comprehensive non-discrimination law, passed a ban on conversion therapy for LGBTQ youth, and the city of Cleveland has repeatedly been recognized with a 100% score on the human rights campaign municipal equality index


Fostering an inclusive economy and community is not only important to maintaining a welcoming and affirming society, but it’s also good for business. This decision is contrary to the public opinion of the majority of Americans.


Cleveland City Council is committed to supporting Clevelanders of all races, religions, gender identities, and sexual orientations. Yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
