The United States Supreme Court ruled today in favor of a Colorado baker, Jack Phillips, who refused to make a cake for a same-sex couple’s wedding. The Supreme Court decision was limited in its scope as the court’s ruling dealt with “anti-religious bias on the Colorado Civil Rights Commission.” (Here’s more on how that worked.)

At 6 p.m. Monday on the steps of the Colorado State Capitol, the Anti-Defamation League, Courts Matter Colorado, the ACLU of Colorado, the Interfaith Alliance of Colorado and One Colorado are hosting a rally in response to the court’s decision. For Daniel Ramos, Executive Director of One Colorado, the rally is a call to protect all Americans’ rights and freedoms.

“We’re disappointed in the decision because it’s so narrow, but we want to remind the community that the state’s non-discrimination laws are still in place,” said Ramos. “The second purpose of the rally is to really bring the community together and remind them that our opposition is more aggressive than ever. Our opposition will continue to use religion to ignore whatever laws they want and chip away the at the hard-fought victories we’ve gathered.”
