In April, the Equal Opportunity Employment Commission issued an opinion that said any employer who discriminates against an employee or applicant on the basis of gender identity is violating the prohibition on sex discrimination contained in Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

On Thursday, December 6th from 5 to 6:30 p.m., EEOC Commissioner Chai Feldblum will discuss the significance of that opinion at Evergreen Presbyterian Church.

The event is sponsored by the Tennessee Equality Project's Shelby County Committee and the Tennessee Transgender Political Coalition.
