Eric Holder urges LGBTQ advocates to 'keep resisting' at GLAD's Spirit of Justice dinner

The Honorable Eric H. Holder Jr., the 82nd attorney general of the United States, accepted the Spirit of Justice Award in Boston Friday night [October 27], urging the crowd of 1,000 advocates for LGBTQ equality to 'keep standing up, keep speaking out, keep resisting.'

GLBTQ Legal Advocates & Defenders (GLAD) honored Holder for his instrumental role in advancing LGBTQ justice and his leadership on other civil rights matters, including criminal justice reform, and voting rights.

Attendees also heard from Dylan Kohere, an 18-year-old freshman at the University of New Haven, who has been barred from enrolling in ROTC because of President Trump's ban on transgender people serving in the military. Kohere is a plaintiff in GLAD's lawsuit Doe v. Trump, which challenges the ban. On Monday, a federal district court ruled in favor of the plaintiffs and enjoined the ban.

The annual event this year raised $890,000 to support GLAD's work fighting for LGBTQ equality through litigation, legislation, and education.

Through strategic litigation, public policy advocacy, and education, GLBTQ Legal Advocates & Defenders works in New England and nationally to create a just society free of discrimination based on gender identity and expression, HIV status, and sexual orientation.
