Annual Meeting 2022 Special Events

T Andrew Brown

Presidential Summit

Virtual Only
Thursday, January 20, 2022
2:00pm-5:00pm

Keynote Address with Hon. Letitia James, Attorney General of New York

 
3.0 MCLE Credits: 1.5 Ethics; 1.5 Diversity, Inclusion, and Elimination of Bias

The twin crises of the coronavirus pandemic and police brutality brought social justice to the forefront of the national debate. This was long overdue, but true equality cannot be realized until all vulnerable populations are protected and supported under the law. The Presidential Summit is the marquee event of the New York State Bar Association’s (“NYSBA”) Annual Meeting, and the 2022 Summit, under the leadership of NYSBA President T. Andrew Brown, will focus on two of the leading social justice and civil rights matters of the day: a reevaluation of the #MeToo Movement, and the intersection of transgender rights and sports.

A Reassessment Of #MeToo; At A Critical Juncture In State & National History, Where Do We Truly Stand?
Among the topics of the 2019 New York State Bar Association (NYSBA) Presidential Summit was a review of how the #MeToo movement was spurring much-needed reforms to sexual harassment laws, as women across the nation spoke out in greater numbers about their harrowing and degrading experiences at all levels of the professional world. Three years later, America has its first woman vice president and New York has its first woman governor, who ascended as a result of her male predecessor’s sexual harassment scandal. A 2018 New York Times report found at least 201 prominent male business leaders lost their jobs after the fall of disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein broke open the #MeToo floodgates, but less than half of their replacements were women. This panel will re-examine whether changes to the law have, in fact, been successful in protecting and advancing women in the workplace and whether the movement itself needs a reset, including a review of the impact of the #MeToo movement on minorities and communities of color.

Transgender Rights and Sports: Civil Rights Now and Into the Future
The fight for transgender rights is arguably the newest front in the modern civil rights debate. And yet, instead of widespread efforts to extend legal safeguards for the trans community, many states across the nation are headed in the opposite direction – especially when it comes to youth sports. An unprecedented number of bills have been introduced over the past two years to ban or severely limit transgender youth from participating in school sports. These measures primarily target K-12 students, and many are now before state, district and U.S. appellate courts.

New York, along with local school districts and athletic associations in many states, have policies that seek to protect the civil rights of transgender persons – especially children – while also ensuring a level playing field for all athletes. However, positions that may be taken by higher courts at the federal level could potentially limit or reverse these important safeguards altogether. This panel will provide education and the opportunity for mutually respectful, objective, fact-based dialogue on the constitutional, scientific, and social justice implications of these laws. In addition, the panel will address broader issues surrounding the competitive impact of existing guidelines intended to afford inclusion of athletes with Differences of Sexual Development (“DSD”) at the collegiate, Olympic, and other elite levels while ensuring fair competition.
