Fighting for LGBTQ+ Rights
The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and seven of the world’s top law firms, including Sidley, have joined forces to form a groundbreaking alliance to combat LGBTQ+ discrimination and obtain LGBTQ+ equality at home and abroad through strategic litigation. The mission of the alliance is to pursue cases that will help shape state and federal laws, regulations and policies and the application of constitutional principles. This historic effort will complement HRC’s ongoing legal work and partnerships with other legal and civil rights groups. Among the media outlets that published articles on this initiative and Sidley’s role, Time magazine quoted Carter Phillips, who noted that HRC “is a long-standing pro bono client and this next stage of collaboration reinforces Sidley’s deep commitment to advocating for diversity and equality.”
