Open Round-table Discussion on Same-Sex Marriage Leading the discussion will be professors Alex Boni-Saenz and our own Mark Wojcik. They will analyze the arguments made before the SCOTUS last week, and forecast a post-DOMA future. Jim Bennett of Lambda Legal's Midwest Office will provide an update on the rapidly evolving status of marriage equality in Illinois, both in the legislature and courts (Darby v. Orr). You will also hear from our legislation subcommittee about the work that we have been doing to advance equality in other legislative efforts. However, we want this to be an interactive discussion, so bring your questions and ideas! Your participation and views are invited/encouraged! Lets hear about strategies to promote the Illinois marriage equality legislation.
