Attorneys often hesitate to volunteer not due to lack of passion or commitment, but due to lack of time–I can’t commit to a board position, I can’t commit to a leadership role, I can’t commit to bringing a lawsuit. Can you commit to an hour a month? Meanwhile, anti-LGBTQ+ groups are proclaiming “Won’t somebody think of the children?!” as they strip young people of their privacy, autonomy, and education. Many of these battles are fought at the local county or city level between school boards, city councils, and special interest groups, with an attorney for either side nowhere in sight. But progress at the community level doesn’t always need a lawsuit, or a specialist, or even an attorney–just someone who can think like one. In this workshop, we will discuss the skills every lawyer has regardless of practice area. We will then hear directly from community youth group leaders on how attorneys can utilize those abstract skills, in anything from an hour a month to an hour a day of their time, to support their causes. Finally, we will have an open discussion on how local LGBTQ+ bar associations and these advocacy groups can work together to better their community.
