[SDCPJ] Please Forward: Activist Meeting Mon, March 18~ LOVE AND THE LAW: Will the U.S. Supreme Court Do the Right Thing on Marriage Equality?

Activist San Diego General Meeting
LOVE AND THE LAW: 

Will the U.S. Supreme Court
Do the Right Thing on Marriage Equality?



Monday, March 18 at 7 PM


ASD General Meeting

On March 26 and 27, the United States Supreme Court will hear cases challenging California’s Proposition 8 and the federal Defense of Marriage Act, which ban legal recognition of same-sex couples’ marriages. Will they uphold the lower-court rulings that have declared marriage equality a civil right? Will they reverse them and say the definition of marriage should be led to each state? Or will they look for a procedural “out” that will allow them to rule narrowly in these cases without establishing any sweeping precedents?

Hear prominent local attorneys and activists discuss the legal issues surrounding marriage equality and what the Supreme Court is likely to do... And how the activist community should and needs to react.

Featured speakers:

ERIC ISAACSON
Local attorney representing the California Council of Churches as friends of the court in the case against Proposition 8

TODD MOORE
Local attorney who represented former SAME Alliance president Cecile Veillard in the “Equality Nine” case involving protesters for marriage equality

FERNANDO LOPEZ
Administrative and public affairs director, San Diego LGBT Pride; former political affairs director, San Diego LGBT Community Center

LEO E. LAURENCE, J.D.
Veteran community activist who led the first-ever U.S. protest against a private employer for anti-LGBT discrimination in San Francisco in March 1969

A representative of SAME Alliance will also speak.
