Illinois Sexual Harassment Updates . . . .
CHICAGO (CBS) -- On Tuesday Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul joined with his colleagues in 14 other states urging Target to resist harassment from anti-LGBTQ+ activists.
They said removing pride merchandise sends the wrong message to both groups, making the LGBTQ+ community feel unsupported and telling the activists that bullying works.
"Discrimination and harassment against LGBTQ+ people have no place in our society. Members of the LGBTQ+ community deserve to feel safe and welcome in Illinois and beyond our state's borders," Raoul said. "During Pride Month and throughout the year. I urge businesses to work with local law enforcement to ensure staff members and customers are safe from LGBTQ+ harassment and vandalism – without sending a message that anti-LGBTQ+ bullying will be successful."
The US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) defines sexual harassment as follows:
Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature when such conduct:
