The *UC Hastings College of the Law's Women's Law Journal*, OUTLAW, Diversity Committee, and BALIF are proud to present this 2017 Symposium: RISING OUT of Legal Blind Spots
(MCLE available - including Recognition and Elimination of Bias in the Legal Profession and Society)
Activists and lawyers lead the charge to protect civil rights and the values of our country. This year's symposium seeks to inspire by honoring the accomplishments of several local pioneers of the LGBTQ Civil Rights movement and their commitment to social justice through a discussion of their experiences and ideas for how to continue to protect the most threatened and vulnerable groups.
The symposium will feature Keynote Speaker, Cleve Jones, author of the book When We Rise, inspiration for the ABC miniseries of the same name, followed by the Activist Panel including Cecilia Chung, Roma Guy, Diane Jones, and Ken Jones; detailing their work with the LGBT/HIV and homeless communities and what is necessary moving forward to protect not only LGBT rights but rights of all minorities.
Session II The Modern Family panel seeks to shed light on some of the specific blind spots in the law such as underlying bias and discrimination facing non-traditional families; including reproductive, custody, and dissolution issues burdening.
Session III Refugees and Asylum panel will focus on women, people of color, and other marginalized groups, including LGBT and HIV related asylum claims.
BALIF will be hosting a meet-n-greet reception at 6pm with the When We Rise Panel.
