LGBT workshop examines marriage equality issues
The President’s Commission on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual Transgender Concerns is hosting a workshop for LGBT individuals and allies from Emory and the broader community, intended to provide an understanding of current issues surrounding marriage equality. “Why Marriage Equality Matters to Us All and Important Legal Protections” will be held Nov. 30 at 6:30 p.m. in 208 White Hall.

The workshop will include a short film and a discussion of the state of marriage equality in America by civil rights attorney Karen Doering of the National Center for Lesbian Rights. In addition, Atlanta attorney Barbara Katz will discuss the legal protections that LGBT individuals can use to better protect themselves, their children and their relationships.

• Street lighting
• Landscape and signage standards
• Pedestrian crossing features.

Emory initiated the Clifton Community Partnership to provide a framework for residents, employers, employees, businesses and local governments to work together to foster a healthy living-learning-working environment and to improve the quality of life throughout the Clifton community.
