Amicus Briefs Fact Sheets NWLC Litigation

We are immensely proud of NWLC’s litigation efforts during 2021, including though our cases against entities that engage in sex discrimination, our cases that keep the pressure on the federal government to fully reverse harmful Trump-era policies, and by leading 23 amicus briefs in a range of cases in which important civil rights protections are at stake. We are excited to highlight victories where we brought positive change through our litigation, including vacating a harmful provision of the Department of Education’s Title IX rule addressing civil rights protections for survivors, ensuring that a harmful Department of Labor (OFCCP) rule that expanded exceptions to workplace civil rights was removed, and continuing our legal fight to ensure equality in healthcare through our challenges to the Department of Health and Human Services’ Section 1557, birth control, and refusal rules. We could not do this work without our terrific law firm partners and partner advocacy organizations, and we thank them for their time, expertise, and good-natured collaboration.
