CreagerCole orchestrated an exclusive story in the Associated Press for our client, Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund and its federal lawsuit against Amazon for workplace discrimination. The lawsuit is on behalf of a married couple who faced cruel and persistent discrimination at an Amazon shipping facility in Hebron, Kentucky. Allegra Schawe-Lane and her husband, Dane Lane, encountered the bias between October 2014 and October 2015.
The AP story was picked up by newspapers across the nation, reaching millions of readers.
CreagerCole is proud to work with TLDEF in spotlighting its groundbreaking cases and informing the American public about what’s at stake for transgender people who are just trying to work hard, make a living and provide for their families. We wish Allegra and Dane all the best as this lawsuit proceeds.
