“It Is So Ordered”: Social Change and the Campaign for Marriage Equality
Date: November 13, 2015
Location: New York University School of Law
The Journal of Legislation and Public Policy and the Arthur Garfield Hays Civil Liberties Program partnered to host a Symposium entitled “‘It Is So Ordered’: Social Change and the Campaign for Marriage Equality” at New York University School of Law on Friday, November 13th, 2015. This event analyzed the implications of the U.S. Supreme Court’s historic decision in Obergefell v. Hodges for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex and asexual (“LGBTQIA”) community, specifically focusing on the numerous issues beyond marriage access that continue to pose challenges in the community’s struggle for equal rights. The Symposium engaged in further in-depth analysis of the movement for LGBTQIA equality by evaluating the legal strategies that this and other civil rights campaigns have employed in their efforts to achieve social change.
