DOJ Pride Celebration details for 6/3/2015

DOJ Pride is thrilled to announce the details of the Department’s LGBT Pride Month Observance Program  in June:

Bending Toward Justice:  Continuing the March Toward LGBT Equality
Wednesday, June 3, 11am-12pm
The Great Hall, RFK Main Justice

We will have the honor of hosting the Department’s own Solicitor General, Don Verrilli, on the eve of the Supreme Court’s marriage decision.  Just last month, speaking on behalf of the United States, Solicitor Verrilli advocated forcefully and effectively for equal treatment of LGBT individuals, telling the Court:  “Gay and lesbian people are equal.  They deserve equal protection of the laws, and they deserve it now.”  We are also delighted to host Sheila Alexander-Reid, Director of the DC Mayor’s Office of LGBT Affairs.  Ms. Alexander-Reid is veteran community activist and recently served as a Vice President of the Washington Blade.  In addition, we will recognize the winners of this year’s DOJ Pride Awards, the voting for which closes at noon tomorrow, May 14.

DOJ Pride will then host a Pride happy hour later that evening:

DOJ Pride Happy Hour
Wednesday, June 3, 6-8pm
Nellie’s Sports Bar, 900 U Street NW (one block from the green/yellow U Street metro stop)
