Race, Marriage, and President Obama

Building on the success of Lambda’s February 7th lunchtime discussion, “Loving=Perry?  A Conversation on Race and Gay Marriage,” the Civil Rights-Civil Liberties Law Review is hosting an online discussion board to continue the conversation begun at the lunch.  Check it out here.

Lambda was proud to work with Black Law Students Association in planning this event and we look forward to many successful collaborations in the future!

Lambda, GLSEN, and City Year Fight Teen Bullying

Bullying of LGBT teens has been in the news a lot recently, and it’s something that most LGBT individuals have experienced in their own lives.  In addition to hosting panels and discussion groups about legal approaches to the problem, Lambda collaborated with GLSEN and City Year this month to run an anti-bullying training program for over 100 educators and after-school program leaders.   Though we were horrified by some of the stories we heard from the participants, we were proud to give these educators resources and advice for making their schools places of diversity and acceptance.
