The 5th Annual Stonewall Lecture

TueNov9
- Roger Williams University School of LawRegistration Required

The 1969 Stonewall Riots marked a critical turn in the fight for LGBTQ rights, serving as the impetus for the formation of several gay, lesbian and bisexual civil rights organizations. Today we honor the numerous individuals who have fought for LGBTQ equality and justice and the many contributions they have made to advance this modern day civil rights movement.

This year's keynote speaker is Taylor Brown (she/her), a Staff Attorney in the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and HIV Project at the National Headquarters of the American Civil Liberties Union in New York City. Taylor litigates civil rights lawsuits across the country, to defend and expand the civil rights and liberties of LGBTQ+ people and all people living with HIV. Taylor is also actively engaged in federal and state policy advocacy and community engagement.

A 4:00-5:00 p.m. lecture followed by a 5:00 p.m. reception. Masks required.
