LGBT rights with Equality Rights Advocates -- Legacy's HIV Fundraiser Mint Julep

We speak with folks from the Equal Rights Advocates about the threat to LGBT rights coming from the Supreme Court. Equality Rights Advocates works to solve our country’s most pressing challenges — poverty, violence, discrimination —by transforming our communities into places where every woman and girl can lead. They envision a world where work and school are guaranteed places of safety and promise; where every student can grow to their fullest potential; where all women have the economic security they need to care for themselves, their families, and their communities. Together, they’re building a world of true gender justice, where everyone has equal opportunity to thrive.
