Evan Wolfson Comes to Vienna (12 Oct 15)
Winning the Freedom to Marry
The historic U.S. Supreme Court ruling on June 26, 2015 paved the way for the freedom to marry nationally. Marriage licenses are now being issued across the United States. Evan Wolfson, Founder and President of Freedom to Marry, the campaign that won equal marriage rights in the U.S., will discuss his decades-long, hard-fought fight for the freedom to marry and the lessons for the work ahead.
