ATTENTION C|M|LAW STUDENTS:
Join us Monday, March 20 in the Rawson Learning Commons as Alana Jochum and Alex Shanks of Equality Ohio will discuss issues surrounding the rights of LGBT individuals in Ohio. Equality Ohio is a non-profit, Ohio-based organization that advocates in favor of expanding legal protections for the LGBT community under state and local laws. Jochum is Equality Ohio's Executive Director and a 2010 C|M|LAW graduate, and Shanks serves as Field and Project Director for the organization.
They will discuss the state of LGBT legal rights in Ohio and Equality Ohio's efforts to advance those rights, with a specific emphasis on the laws (and lack thereof) impacting Ohio's transgender community. The duo will also offer advice to students who may be interested in pursuing a career in advocacy work related to LGBT rights or other areas.
Light refreshments will be served.
