We celebrated in June when the Supreme Court overturned a key part of the so-called 'Defense of Marriage Act' (DOMA). But do you know what the demise of DOMA means for your relationship and your rights under the law?
Join us for a free community meeting that will help answer those questions. 'Marriage Equality After DOMA' is scheduled for Monday, August 12, from 6 to 8 p.m., at Seattle University's Pigott Auditorium (in the Pigott Building, on campus near 12th Avenue and East Marion Street).
Panelists will provide information and answer questions on issues including federal taxes, employee benefits, family law, Social Security, military benefits, immigration, and what's being done currently to make marriage equality a reality in all 50 states.
The discussion will be moderated by Lacey All, chair of Washington United for Marriage. Panelists include:
o Howard Bye-Torre, Stoel Rives
o Shelbi Day, Lambda Legal
o Wendy Goffe, Stoel Rives
o Janet Helson, Skellenger Bender
We hope to see you there! No registration is required, but for planning purposes and updates please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This event is co-sponsored by: Access to Justice Institute at Seattle University School of Law, ACLU of Washington, Greater Seattle Business Association, Flying House Productions, Human Rights Campaign, Lambda Legal, Legal Voice, Pride Foundation, Seattle Lesbian, Social Outreach Seattle, Three Dollar Bill Cinema, and QLaw Association & Foundation. -Submitted by Legal Voice
