LGBTQ @ Venable

LGBTQ @ Venable is committed to providing education and professional development opportunities for our firm’s LGBTQ attorneys, clients, and friends. We frequently host programs and speaking engagements that explore issues of particular importance to the LGBTQ community. Recent events include a discussion and reception with Jim Obergefell, the named plaintiff in the landmark decision that resulted in a victory for marriage equality, and a presentation by Eric Alva, the first American soldier injured in the Iraq War, who as former spokesperson for the Human Rights Campaign worked with members of Congress to repeal the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy.
