    It is unacceptable for any employer to try to silence a worker because he or she was a victim of any type of harassment or discrimination -- whether due to race, sexual orientation, religion, age or any other characteristic, sB 331 will empower survivors to speak out -- if they so wish -- so they can hold perpetrators accountable and hopefully prevent abusers from continuing to torment and abuse other workers.

  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Tolerance is prerogative of humanity. In my view, when we think that ours is the only true path to righteousness, we inadvertently force ourselves to judging others with our own yardstick, and walking in the territory of arrogance. Interestingly, the roads that lead to righteousness and arrogance though seem to run in parallel, may intersect each other at several points in our lives. We cannot differentiate between these two roads easily, unless we understand that the road to righteousness is paved with the love of humanity, while the road to arrogance is paved with the love of self. Being tolerant to various beliefs, colors, cultures, races, genders, sexual orientations, and ethnicities etc has become extremely important in the world filled with discrimination, prejudice, and supremacy etc. As the French Philosopher Voltaire said it correctly "La tolérance, c'est l'apanage de l'humanité" - i.e. Tolerance is prerogative of humanity. We believe that Tolerance will surely make our world a better place.

  5. Michelle Paradise:

    ' Star Trek' has always made a mission of giving visibility to underrepresented communities because Star Trek ' believes in showing people that a future without division on the basis of race, gender, gender identity or sexual orientation is entirely within our reach.
