LGBT Bar Association Bigotry

Aug 6, 2018

The National LGBT Bar Association, a national association of lawyers, an affiliate of the American Bar Association, recently announced a campaign that encourages attorneys across the nation to pledge not to provide pro bono services to Liberty Counsel and Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF). 

The Commit to Inclusion Campaign pledge states: “We, the undersigned members of the legal community, wish to publicly object to the anti-LGBT legal groups which operate within the United States legal system, including groups operating as ADF and Liberty Counsel. We commit to inclusion by ensuring that our personal pro bono and volunteer capacity and personal financial resources will not be used to support the work of ADF and Liberty Counsel.”

The National LGBT Bar Association has an annual conference to bring together legal professionals in the LGBT community. BMW and Walmart are two of the top sponsors of this conference.
