In today’s blog post, we’re highlighting three events that we expect to make headlines in June.
- The month of June has been celebrated as Pride Month since 1969. One of the most notable milestones in the fight for LGBTQ+ rights, the Stonewall Riots, occurred that year on June 28 at the Stonewall Inn, where riots followed police raids at the historically gay bar. Throughout the month of June, LGBTQ+ Pride is promoted through awareness, activism and celebration. Parades and protests have become Pride Month traditions in many cities where rainbow flags are proudly flown.
- A final decision surrounding the leaked SCOTUS draft ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade is expected to be issued in June or early July, according to The New York Times. The Supreme Court has not issued a public update on the investigation of the May 2 leak launched by Chief Justice John Roberts.
- June 23 will mark the 50th anniversary of the landmark federal civil rights law that affirmed that people could not be discriminated against based on sex in any education program or any activity that received federal funding. Title IX transformed athletic opportunities for women and girls, but in recent years, the legislation has become more known for its requirements regarding how colleges and universities respond to reports of sexual misconduct.
