Suzanne Goldberg, professor of law at Columbia University, will discuss Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, & Queer/Questioning (LGBTQ) Refugees and U.S. immigration policies and practices in a lecture on Monday, Sept. 24, at 4 p.m., in the Red Pit, KJ.  The discussion will pertain to those seeking asylum from persecution based on sexual orientation and gender identity/expression. The lecture is free and open to the public.


Goldberg founded and directs the Sexuality & Gender Law Clinic, and co-directs the Center for Gender & Sexuality Law at Columbia University. She has worked for Lambda Legal, and co-founded Immigration Equality, a national organization that advocates for equality under U.S. immigration law for LGBT and HIV positive individuals and families. She argued the first ever sexual orientation based asylum case to reach the federal appeals court.


A questions and answer session will follow the lecture. Co-sponsored by Rainbow Alliance and the Days-Massolo Center.
