Querida HNBA Familia,

June was a month filled with activity, including major U.S. Supreme Court decisions on key HNBA advocacy priorities related to LGBTQ protection and immigration as well as dynamic and engaging HNBA/VIA virtual programs.

On June 15, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that, under the 1964 Civil Rights Act, gay, lesbian, and transgender employees are protected from workplace discrimination based on gender or sexual orientation. HNBA’s official statement celebrated the opinion, noting that we must continue to fight against these types of discrimination and barriers. HNBA applauded the Supreme Court decision to continue DACA’s protections from deportation, also noting that continued advocacy for permanent citizenship for qualified immigrants is the ultimate goal.

Later that same week, on June 18, the U.S. Supreme Court blocked the federal government’s attempt to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which protects hundreds of thousands of DREAMers from deportation. The HNBA community was closely watching the DACA case and anticipating a decision that would affect many individuals currently working, living and learning in the United States. Just a week prior to the Supreme Court’s decision, the HNBA/VIA Webinar: Deconstructing DACA, held on June 9, featured an informative panel discussion of corporate social responsibility in the education and technology sectors. Speakers shared how DACA has made a difference in the way they do business, touching on legal implications of the program and outlining future possibilities. [Read More…]
