Event Time and Date

Tuesday, March 21 2017, 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM

This session will cover key court decisions that have defined the LGBTQ+ legal environment including the topics of gender expression, marriage, adoption, and employment rights. Additionally, we will discuss how these laws directly impact Virginia Tech students, faculty, and staff, and what steps Safe Zones must take when these rights are violated. Information on Title IX compliance and reporting information relevant to the Cleary Act will also be a focus.
