Evergreen to Host Debate on Marriage Equality Friday, October 19

October 5, 2012

The Evergreen State College will host a debate on marriage equality on Friday, October 19 at 7:00 p.m. in the Longhouse. The event is free and open to the public and is offered to the campus and local community as a public service. A live web stream of the event will make the debate available to people across Washington State.

Debating the issue are Andrew Koppelman, John Paul Stevens Professor of Law at Northwestern University, and Maggie Gallagher, co-founder of the National Organization for Marriage and the author of four books on marriage, including (with John Corvino) Debating Same-Sex Marriage. Member of the Faculty Jose Gomez will moderate.

Hosting a debate on marriage equality is timely. This issue will be on the ballot on November 6. Those interested in this topic can find out more about Referendum 74 through the on-line voter’s guide provided by the Secretary of State.
