Minority Corporate Counsel Association Statement Supporting the Supreme Court’s Landmark Ruling Legalizing Gay Marriage Nationwide

SCOTUS Recognizes the Diversity and the Constitutional Rights of the LGBT Community

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the Minority Corporate Counsel Association (MCCA) President and CEO, Joseph K. West, released the following statement supporting the historic U.S. Supreme Court ruling legalizing gay marriage nationwide. The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that the U.S. Constitution provides same-sex couples the right to marry, a historic triumph making gay marriage legal in all 50 states.

Joseph K. West stated:

“MCCA joins the millions of LGBT Americans in celebrating the Supreme Court’s decision making same-sex marriage legal across our nation. For years, corporate America has taken steps to champion diversity. It is long time that our country take a stand to honor diversity in our society.

This hard-fought victory is the beginning of more battles that lie ahead. MCCA will continue to work to uplifting diversity and inclusion in the corporate legal departments and all workplaces.”
