The Rocky Mountain Paralegal Association is proud to announce its Pride Month Program for 2020 as part of its commitment to diversity and inclusion in our profession and in our communities.
Topic: The Legal History of the LGBT Movement
Presenter: Ed C. Schneider, M.A. - President
Join us for a journey which is nearly a century in the making in America where civil rights for all men and women were not always guaranteed. We will examine the legal history of the movement including discussing laws which criminalized LGBT behaviors; discussing landmark cases which involved discriminatory practices against the LGBT community; and discuss current cases which may affect our communities. The goal of this discussion is to create a neutral and well rounded understanding of the LGBT movement without bias as we celebrate PRIDE in America and the 51st Anniversary of the event which started it all, or was it?
