The Life Sciences and Society Symposium entitled the Science of love presents Jim Obergefell. Jim Obergefell is the named plaintiff in the 2015 Supreme Court case Obergefell v. Hodges. His talk will focus on his 2016 book Love Wins: The Lovers and Lawyers Who Fought the Landmark Case for Marriage Equality, the “fascinating and very moving story of the lovers, lawyers, judges and activists behind the groundbreaking Supreme Court case that led to one of the most important, national civil rights victories in decades—the legalization of same-sex marriage.” The New York Times also made a short film about Mr. Obergefell and the Supreme Court case.
