Attorney to lead Lawrence workshop about how families with LGBTQ+ members can protect their rights & More Live News

Amid rising fears that same-sex marriage will be banned, Lawrence attorney David Brown will lead a workshop Aug. 13 in Lawrence focusing on how families with gay, lesbian and transgender members can protect themselves from threats to their rights.

The gathering will be from 10 a.m. to noon in the sanctuary at Trinity Episcopal Church, 1011 Vermont.

The Very Rev. Rob Baldwin, rector of Trinity Episcopal Church, said in a news release that he arranged the workshop in light of a same-sex marriage he officiated in July, and another planned for later this month.

The workshop comes at a time when the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling overturning the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision regarding abortion has triggered fears the court will overturn its 2015 Obergefell v. Hodges ruling legalizing same-sex marriage.
