UUA Weighs In on Supreme Court Discrimination Case

The Unitarian Universalist Association has taken a stand against employment discrimination in a U.S. Supreme Court case. The case, Hosanna-Tabor Evangelical Lutheran Church and School v. EEOC, discusses whether federal employment discrimination statutes apply to teachers at a religious elementary school.

The UUA has signed on to an amicus curiae brief in support of the respondent, presented to the Supreme Court for consideration. The case has been covered in the media and addressed by civil rights organizations, including:
