Many are taking notice of the number of states introducing anti-LGBTQ, anti-transgender, and other social legislation.

Join Hinshaw and Cathryn Oakley, the state legislative director and senior counsel at the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), as she discusses the latest updates on state and local non-discrimination laws and anti-LGBTQ+ legislation.

This hybrid event allows you to participate in one of three ways:

  1. Join Cathryn Oakley in person in our New York office;
  2. Watch a simulcast in our Chicago office; or
  3. Participate virtually via Zoom.

We hope you will join us!

Featured Speaker

In her role at HRC, Cathryn Oakley is responsible for advising legislators and advocates working to enact laws that further LGBTQ equality. She focuses in particular on passing non-discrimination laws at the state and local levels and combating anti-LGBTQ legislation in state legislatures, including bills preventing municipalities from passing non-discrimination ordinances, bills that would give state agents the ability to deny service to LGBTQ people, and anti-transgender legislation that limits the ability of transgender people – including students – to access facilities in accordance with their gender identity.
