The University of Mississippi School of Law is hosting the 4th Annual LGBT Law Symposium Friday, March 21. The conference will include several panel discussions on different legal issues affecting LGBT community including, HIV/AIDS, Military, Gay and Trans Panic Legal Defense, and Tax Law following the Supreme Court Windsor Decision. CHLP Staff Attorney, Rashida Richardson, will discuss HIV Criminalization and PJP's advocacy work on the HIV/AIDS panel.
The Center for HIV Law and Policy challenges barriers to the rights and health of people affected by HIV through legal advocacy, high-impact policy initiatives, and creation of cross-issue partnerships, networks, and resources. We support movement building that amplifies the power of individuals and communities to mobilize for change that is rooted in racial, gender, and economic justice.
