Havurah Hangout Explores Civil Rights

Our first Havurah Hangout, Sunday, October 19 at 5:00 PM, honors the 50th anniversaries of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Selma to Montgomery Civil Rights March of 1965.  Emily Joselson will engage us in a conversation on the role of law and activism in the pursuit of civil rights, both past and present.  While the country still reels from the recent death of Michael Brown, in Ferguson, MO, we can fairly ask ourselves how much has really changed.  But we can also celebrate such positive legacies of the civil rights movement in the gains made in such areas as gender pay equity and gay rights.  Emily’s law practice spans cases involving employment discrimination, environmental harms, and personal injury/wrongful death, among others.
