Join 92Y and the Forum on Life, Culture & Society for its annual program, Law of the Land: The Supreme Court’s Year in Review. The series has proven to be immensely popular, mostly because the Supreme Court, and the goings on there, are largely mysterious to most people. We will take you inside the Court’s major rulings and discuss their bearing on past and future cases. Thane Rosenbaum, Creative Director of the Forum on Life, Culture & Society at Touro College, brings a diverse panel of engaging experts—the New York Times’ Adam Liptak; MSNBC’s Lisa Green; Slate’s Dahlia Lithwick; and law professor from the Touro Law Center, Tiffany Graham—to delve into the cases decided this past Term, when the Supreme Court, during a pandemic, took on issues related to abortion, ObamaCare, DACA, gun ownership, workplace protection for gays and transgenders, and President Trump’s tax returns. CLE for this program is anticipated and will be announced upon approval. Please direct any queries to Shervin Abachi at [masked].
Coalition to End Sexual Exploitaton, 2020 Global Summit
Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation Online Global Summit 10 DAYS, 100 SPEAKERS, 10,000 ABOLITIONISTS... Register Free! https://cese2020.heysummit.com/ WHY THE ONLINE GLOBAL #CESESummit? The rise of the Internet, social media, and other technologies have completely revolutionized the way people live. Along with the good these developments have made possible, they have also unleashed tidal waves of sexual harm: pornography exposure abuse; sexually explicit and sexually violent video games; child sexual abuse images; spycamming; sexting; sextortion; “sugar daddy” sites; online sex trafficking; prostitution review boards; compulsive sexual behaviors; grooming, and more Modern technology is accelerating the pace and scale of sexual abuse and exploitation. This reality—combined with a toxic deluge of pop culture messages normalizing harmful attitudes and behaviors—is rapidly transforming forms of sexual abuse, violence, and exploitation from the intolerable to the fashionable and “normal.” Young people are the most impacted. They have little to no chance of living lives free from the harmful impacts of these phenomena. These challenges are urgent. If we don’t act now, we may miss this narrow window of opportunity to turn the tide. We must stand together to confront the rising tide of abuse and exploitation. This is why the Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation Online Global Summit creates a one-of-a-kind setting, where people from across sexual abuse and exploitation sectors, as well as from a diverse range of professional, political, and personal backgrounds, coalesce to be informed, equipped, connected and inspired. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to find common purpose with others who believe in preserving respect, intimacy, mutuality, responsibility, and love in human sexual relationships. Come join us as we fight for a world free from sexual abuse and exploitation!
