LGBT Rights in Mississippi: Rob Hill
With the expectation that the U.S. Supreme Court will settle, once and for all, the question of marriage for same-sex couples, the LGBT movement looks beyond marriage and what is at stake for LGBT Mississippians. In a state that does not provide protections in employment, housing and public accommodations, there is still much work to do in order to make sure that all citizens are treated fairly.
Rob Hill, state director of the Human Rights Campaign in Mississippi, will talk about the work going forward as it relates to LGBT equality in Mississippi.
Time: 11:45 AM to 1 PM
Date: Wednesday, May 13, 2015
