Events

Because we’re a legal organization and we dedicate so much of our resources to our legal services and programs, we just can’t be everywhere we want to be. So when we’re in your area either at a benefit event or a legal workshop, we really hope you’ll join us and bring your friends and family. It’s a special opportunity for us to connect with you in person.

If you’d like to host your own event to benefit NCLR, download our Benefit Event Kit (pdf) and get your party started!

Marriage and More: The Future of the LGBT Movement
Wednesday, October 2, 2013
5:30pm
With NCLR Legal Director 
Shannon Price Minter, Esq.

In the wake of the stunning U.S. Supreme Court victories striking down Section 3 of the federal Defense of Marriage Act and restoring marriage equality in California, the LGBT rights movement faces the challenge of how to achieve marriage equality nationwide while also addressing the many other issues facing LGBT people, such as widespread homelessness among LGBT youth, astronomically high rates of violence and discrimination against transgender people, and the absence of legal protections for same-sex parents in most states. How will the movement navigate this challenge?
