How YOU Can Advance the Human Rights of LGBTQ Communities WorldWide
Jointly presented by the Lavender Bar Association, The Advocates for Human Rights, and Ballard Spahr LLP

Please join the Lavender Bar Association in learning about the ways in which LGBTQ communities worldwide are fighting back against attacks on their human rights, and how Midwest-based attorneys, judges, and other advocates can use their unique skills to join these vulnerable communities in advocating for their rights to be protected and advanced, in a time where those rights face a variety of attacks. 
 
Presenters from Minnesota-based non-profit The Advocates for Human Rights will discuss the areas of the world experiencing major challenges to human rights of LGBTQ individuals, and how attorneys can:
 
  • Effectively advocate for asylum seekers and others seeking humanitarian protection from deportation
  • Effectively respond to U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ unprecedented decision in Matter of A-B-, and its potential impact on the human rights of LGBTQ asylum seekers
  • Assist youth and adults impacted by the administrations’ recent policies regarding family separation and border detention
  • Advocate for those impacted by the Trump Administration’s travel ban
  • Advocate on behalf of protections for the rights of LGBTQ communities before international treaty bodies
  • Participate in the work of diaspora communities in Minnesota and the Dakotas to advance the rights of LGBTQ individuals in their countries of origin
