Fulton, Faith, Families and Foster Care

As its inaugural event, the UVA Family Law Center will host an online symposium examining Fulton v. City of Philadelphia, which will be argued before the U.S. Supreme Court on Nov. 4. In the case, Catholic Social Services is challenging the City of Philadelphia’s refusal to refer foster children to Catholic Social Services because it will not certify same-sex couples as foster parents. The conference will bring together a multidisciplinary group of scholars with varying perspectives, many of whom have filed amici briefs in the case. Full Schedule | Register

From the Equal Rights Amendment to Black Lives Matter: Reflecting on Intersectional Struggles for Equality

This virtual symposium will explore the intersectional nature of race and sex (including LGBTQ+) equality movements, the contributions of activists with intersectional identities, and the potential role of intersectional theories to inform future efforts to advance race and sex equality. The symposium will culminate in a keynote speech by Elaine R. Jones ’70 at 1:30 p.m. Jones is the first Black woman to graduate from UVA Law School — 50 years ago — and the first woman to serve as director-counsel and president of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund.
