Your chance to send message to the Supreme Court


Paid for by Housing Works/NYC and organized by Carrie Fisher, local advocate, a free bus ride is being offered to the Oct. 8 hearing.

The US Supreme Court will hear arguments in three separate LGBT cases to determine whether LGBT people are protected in the workplace by the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Housing Works.

The bus will fold into what Fisher is calling on her Facebook event page “a MASS demonstration in front of the Supreme Court in DC to send a message to the Court, to the Trump Administration, to ALL 2020 candidates and to the American people that we will FIGHT for our rights and for the rights of our loved ones and communities and we will NOT go back!”

Buses will depart Harrisburg around 7:30 a.m. and return approximately around 10:30 p.m. This is a free event.

Additional information is available from Fowler via e-mail
