About the Event
A Free Community Brunch
Join us for a free brunch and conversation with national civil, disability, and LGBTQ legal rights pioneer, Chai Feldblum, General Counsel Connie McGrane of the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination, and GLAD Executive Director Janson Wu.
We’ll share information on the high-profile cases just heard at the Supreme Court about whether LGBTQ workers are protected from discrimination under federal law – what the cases mean for you, and what we can all do to advocate for strong non-discrimination protections for all LGBTQ people. Plus, get practical information from experts about filing a claim of discrimination, how to document your case, where to get help, and what to expect from the process.
Venue is mobility accessible
