The Supreme Court’s hearings on gay marriage made national headlines in April, and the verdict they give this month could change the state of civil liberties. Steve Shapiro, national ACLU legal director, will discuss this and other ongoing, vital cases moving through the higher courts. In addition to tackling the topic of extending the right for lesbians and gays to marry, he’ll discuss reining in government surveillance, countering the Hobby Lobby decision, protecting voting rights, and tackling injustice in the criminal system. Drawing on his experience as counsel on more than 200 briefs submitted to the United States Supreme Court, Shapiro will offer his insight into these ongoing struggles in the courtroom and how they affect the nation.
