Citi Signs Amicus Brief in Support of LGBT Community

Yesterday, Citi joined other companies in signing an amicus brief in support of the LGBT community.
This brief, which related to the case of Masterpiece Cakeshop, Ltd. v. The Colorado Civil Rights Commission, supports Colorado’s enforcement of its law prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation by businesses engaged in providing sales and services to the public.
While the case at hand is complex in its legal arguments, we joined this amicus brief because we support equality for our colleagues in the communities where they live and work. We are proud of Citi’s commitment to diversity and inclusion, and proud to lend our voice to this historic case.
