  • McCarter Celebrates

    The month of June was chosen for LGBT Pride Month to commemorate the Stonewall riots, which occurred at the end of June 1969. McCarter has been at the forefront of the fight for equality for its LGBTQIA+ family members, offering pro bono support to marriage equality efforts, guaranteeing the same benefits to single-sex and mixed-sex couples employed by the firm, and providing one of the first gross-up policies to rectify the disparate tax treatment of same-sex couples at the firm prior to the adoption of marriage equality. This Pride Month, McCarter joins in recognizing the important impact that LGBTQIA+ individuals have had on history locally, nationally, and internationally, as well as the immense progress that has been made with respect to LGBTQIA+ rights.

    Juneteenth (short for “June nineteenth”) occurs on June 19 of each year and is a celebration in the African American community commemorating the ending of slavery. Accordingly, it is often referenced within the African American community (particularly in Texas and other Southern states) as Black Independence Day. Today many states observe Juneteenth to celebrate African American freedom and achievement, while also encouraging self-development and pride.
