A Conference Call for LGBT Advocates Concerned About the State of the Federal Judiciary
July 16, 2012 | 2:00pm - 2:45pm
Federal courts matter to the LGBT community. Federal judges across the country decide cases that affect the most important aspects of our lives – health care, immigration, employment discrimination, and marriage equality.
As community leaders and LGBT advocates, we must change the political dynamic that is compromising our access to justice and ensure that our nation’s courtrooms have a full complement of well-qualified and diverse judges on the bench.
Please join Lambda Legal and the Center for American Progress for a discussion regarding the current state of our federal courts!
