Dignity, Law, and Transgender Lives


Two of the nation’s most prominent authorities will consider the present and future of transgender equality – the political and legal questions being debated in legislatures, courts, and the public square – and whether and how transgender persons will achieve the promise of equal human dignity for their identities and lives.

Featured speakers will be Joshua Block, Senior Staff Attorney with the ACLU LGBT & HIV Project and counsel to Gavin Grimm, a transgender boy whose case against his school district will be heard this spring by the U.S. Supreme Court, and Jody Herman, Scholar of Public Policy with The Williams Institute, UCLA Law School. The program will be moderated by Maurer School of Law Professor Steve Sanders.
