Civil rights laws in America protect gay and transgender workers from discrimination on the job.
That major ruling came from the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday.
The decision could lead to a decrease in discrimination on many fronts, according to administrative assistant Deb Bassett of the 7 Rivers LGBTQ Center staff.
Bassett had expected liberal justices to rule against discrimination, but was pleased to learn that two conservative justices joined in the 6-3 majority.
The ruling comes the same week that the 7 Rivers Center reopens after a three-month shutdown because of coronavirus.
The Center at 6th and Cass reopens Wednesday, and will be open three days a week (Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday) from noon to 4 p.m.
