It’s Time for the Equality Act

Symantec celebrates Pride with a guest post from Human Rights Campaign
Summary: 

The month of June is LGBTQ Pride Month in the United States. Each year, Pride events are held nationwide in cities large and small, and for some people, it is the only occasion where they can be out and proud in their community. Pride festivals and parades are a celebration of the progress the LGBTQ community has made, but also a time to recognize the distance we still have to go to achieve full equality. This June, we’re excited to feature a guest post from Human Rights Campaign’s Liz Cooper.

Culture Spotlight with Cass Averill: Sometimes Being Excluded Has Lifelong Effects
