Chai Feldblum: "The 50th Anniversary of the Civil Rights Act"
Time: 12:00 pm
Location: Anheuser-Busch Hall, Bryan Cave Moot Courtroom
As one of five members of the bipartisan Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), Chai Feldblum is responsible for upholding the federal laws against workplace discrimination. It's a fitting job for someone dedicated to advocating for the rights of minorities and who was instrumental in the creation of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. To mark the half centennial anniversary of the Civil Rights Act as well as celebrate International Women's Day, Feldblum will share her views about the meaning of this milestone in American history.
