Rogan’s List will be starting our summer schedule this week! We will update Monday through Thursday until Congress goes on recess at the end of July, and post Monday, Wednesday and Friday in August. We will return to our usual five-days-a-week list in September!

This means it’s a great time to join our team! We’re looking for a few new contributors to help us create this ever-popular resource.  These are voluntary positions for all of us, but if you think you’d be a good addition to the squad and could help out on a regular basis, please send an email indicating why to to learn more.  Thanks!  We look forward to hearing from you!

  • STAND UP FOR LGBTQIA+ INCLUSION IN THE ECONOMYIn a significant blow to LGBTQIA+ rights, the Supreme Court has ruled that businesses offering “expressive services” have a First Amendment right to refuse to serve same-sex couples if doing so is “against” their beliefs. Dissenting, Justice Sotomayor wrote, “in a free and democratic society, there can be no social castes…the ‘promise of freedom’ is an empty one if the Government is ‘powerless to assure that a dollar in the hands of [one person] will purchase the same thing as a dollar in the hands of a[nother].’” Just so. Let’s protect the LGBTQIA+ community from the psychological and physical harms of this discrimination, and make sure that LGBTQIA+ people can fully participate in our society. We can take steps like these and others to show that our businesses are LGBTQIA+-friendly; we can frequent LGBTQIA+-friendly businesses; and we can spread the word about organizations like StartOut and the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce, which expand economic opportunities for LGBTQIA+ people.

  • FORCED ARBITRATION VS. IMPARTIAL JUSTICEConsumers and workers with legitimate disputes against businesses and employers increasingly find that they have signed away their rights to sue in impartial courts, and are instead limited to hearings before private arbitration forums that favor businesses. The Forced Arbitration Injustice Repeal (FAIR) Act would end this practice in employment, consumer, and civil rights cases. Instead, the FAIR Act (introduced by Democrats) would allow consumers and workers with disputes to choose between arbitration or the court system. Let’s tell our US Senators to co-sponsor S.1376 and our US Representatives to co-sponsor H.R.2953.
