Event Description:

Wednesday, November 16, 2022, 06:00 PM

Shaar Hashomayim Synagogue

On the occasion of our Annual Human Rights Lecture, the Society is delighted to welcome Alexia Korberg, partner at Paul Weiss in New York. Alexia represented Mississippi’s last remaining abortion provider before the U.S. Supreme Court in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization which overturned Roe v. Wade earlier this year. Alexia will be joined on stage by Dean Robert Leckey of McGill’s Faculty of Law, as the two engage in what will undoubtedly be a lively conversation about Alexia’s efforts before SCOTUS in Dobbs and other cases, including to helping to help establish a constitutional right to same-sex marriage.

We are pleased to announce that we will also be awarding the Society’s Human Rights Award to Alexia, for their tireless efforts fighting for women’s reproductive rights, LGBTQ+ rights, and a wide range of other pro bono issues.
