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:
The New York Times: Approaching the Bench, In Search of Answers
USA Today: Religious Leaders Line Up in Support of Supreme Court Case
Americans United for the Separation of Church and State: Hosanna in the Highest Court
Civil Rights and Religious Liberty
