Marriage: A Briefing in Chicago
The Fight for Equality at the Supreme Court
Center on Halsted
3656 N. Halsted Street
This is a community event that will offer answers to the questions surrounding the DOMA and Prop. 8 marriage equality cases currently under review before the Supreme Court. Our panel of experts includes Brian Moulton, Legal Director for HRC, Alexander Boni-Saenz with the University of Chicago Law School and Christopher Clark, Senior Staff Attorney in the Midwest Regional office of Lambda Legal.
Marriage: A Briefing will feature a panel discussion on the core questions coming before the Supreme Court in these two cases, the history of LGBTQ issues before the Court, possible outcomes given the arguments presented at the Court, and the consequent impact that the Court's decisions could have, nationally and here in Illinois. An opportunity for audience Q&A will follow the discussion.
This event is open to all, with a five-dollar suggested donation, and will be followed by a reception sponsored by Center on Halsted’s Young Leaders Board.
