Today: CBS’ Lesley Stahl discusses SCOTUS cases with Evan Wolfson at NYC Pride event
June 25, 2013
Today, Freedom to Marry founder and President Evan Wolfson will be interviewed by Lesley Stahl, correspondent for 60 Minutes, at "Pride in the Workplace," an event from New York City Pride week sponsored by McGraw Hill Financial in partnership with CBS.
Evan will be discussing the two landmark lawsuits concerning the freedom to marry - Windsor v. United States and Hollingsworth v. Perry. The United States Supreme Court is set to announce decisions in both cases tomorrow, June 26.
The event will take place at the McGraw Hill Financial headquarters, 1221 Avenue of the Americas, 50th Floor. A cocktail and networking hour will begin at 5:30 p.m., and the program will follow at 6:30 p.m.
Evan commented on the event last week in a statement. He said:
As we come together to mark both Gay Pride and, we hope, two good marriage rulings from the Supreme Court, it's a good time to celebrate the tremendous progress we have made in Freedom to Marry's campaign to win marriage nationwide. There's much to celebrate, and much still left to do. Freedom to Marry is eager to share our winning strategy far and wide, harness momentum from the coming Supreme Court rulings, and get more people talking and plugged into the ways of moving forward, so together we finish the job and ensure that all Americans can share in the freedom to marry.
