This is a unique experience designed to empower volunteers to better assist families living in poverty. The Pro Bono Center and the Allegheny County Department of Human Services will host a Poverty Simulation at which participants will assume roles in various families with low incomes struggling to survive from week to week.

Speaker:

  • Kate Kendell leads the National Center for Lesbian Rights, a relentless advocate for the rights of LGBT people that regularly brings cases on behalf of LGBT plaintiffs all across the country, including Tanco v. Haslam, one of the four marriage equality cases currently before the U.S. Supreme Court. 
  • The Honorable Therese Stewart is the former Chief Deputy City Attorney for San Francisco who argued before the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals that Prop. 8 was unconstitutional, and in 2013 her groundbreaking work lead to the U.S. Supreme Court's historic decision to overturn the Defense of Marriage Act. 
  • Judge Vaughn Walker, who presided over the Prop. 8 case while serving on the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, was one of the first judges in the country to rule that marriage equality was a constitutional right, a decision that has served as the backbone of the more than 60 marriage quality decisions decided since and leading up to the cases now before the Supreme Court.
