By juliellove99989008, Oct 17 2016 09:16PM
We were excited to discover that the ACLU, the ACLU of Alabama and the Center for Worklife Law, in conjunction with 19 other organizations* sought permission from the United States Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit to file an Amicus Curiae Brief supporting Stephanie Hicks. These organizations are dedicated to achieving equal rights for women in employment and supporting the rights of breastfeeding workers to be free from discrimination on the job. The case is currently on appeal by the City of Tuscaloosa who has also requested oral arguments.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU);
ACLU of Alabama;
ACLU Women’s Rights Project;
The Center for Worklife Law;
