Justice in Action 2018 Awards Luncheon
Each year "Justice in Action" brings together legal professionals, law students, and others to raise funds for and awareness about Mazzoni Center’s Legal Services program, which is the only program offering free legal services tailored to address the needs of low-income LGBTQ Pennsylvanians. Our program assists individuals by providing information, advice, and representation that enables them to understand their rights, use the law to protect themselves and their families, and respond to discrimination because of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
At this year's Awards Luncheon, we're thrilled to be honor the achievements of Tiffany Palmer, Esq., partner and founding member of Jerner & Palmer, P.C. Nearly twenty years ago, Tiffany became the first attorney of Equality Advocates Pennsylvania/Center for Lesbian and Gay Civil Rights, and then became the organization’s first Legal Director. Tiffany’s practice focuses on family formation and dissolution for LGBTQ families using adoption and assisted reproductive technology, in addition to litigation addressing legal parentage and complex family dissolutions. Through her many years of service, Tiffany has made significant contributions that have strengthened the civil rights of LGBTQ individuals and families in Pennsylvania and beyond, and is currently serving as Director of the Family Law Institute of the National LGBT Bar Association.
NOW MORE THAN EVER
In our current tumultuous, uncertain political climate, committed and experienced advocates are needed more than ever to advance, and defend, the rights of LGBTQ people in Philadelphia, in Pennsylvania, and across the United States. Please join us in supporting the critically important work Mazzoni Center Legal Services continues to do on behalf of our community.
