On behalf of the Congressional LGBT Equality Caucus, we would like to invite your staff to attend an upcoming briefing by the Williams Institute on the effects of discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity on Wednesday, November 9, 2011 from 3:30pm to 4:30pm in 2168 RHOB.
Williams Institute experts will highlight emerging research into the costs and other effects of discrimination in the critically important areas of employment, health insurance coverage, and federal recognition of same-sex couples’ valid marriages. The briefing will help staff understand how discrimination in these areas harms core governmental and business interests as well as American families.
