Klinedinst Hosts LGBTQ+ Webinar Featuring Lambda Legal CEO Kevin Jennings

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA – The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision striking down Roe v. Wade has reverberated across the country, with many LGBTQ+ advocates concerned that hard-fought civil rights could be the next target.

On July 13, 2022, Klinedinst hosted an exclusive webinar with Kevin Jennings, CEO of Lambda Legal about the past, present, and future of the fight for LGBTQ+ rights in the courts.

Kevin Jennings, CEO

Lambda Legal is the oldest and largest national legal organization whose mission is to achieve full recognition of the civil rights of lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgender people and everyone living with HIV. Lambda attorneys have been behind many of the court cases that have secured the rights of LGBTQ+ individuals, including the landmark Obergefell decision that recognized marriage equality.

Mr. Jennings, who was Assistant Secretary of Education under President Obama before joining Lambda Legal in 2019, will explore the history of the LGBTQ+ movement, from founding through present day, as well as what the future holds. Thank you to Mr. Jennings and Lambda Legal for their presentation. To learn more about Lambda Legal, please visit: klinedinstlaw.com/lambda-legal
