SSLGBT, Stroock’s Affinity Group for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, and Allied Attorneys, aims to create a network for SSLGBT professionals and to promote a welcoming, diverse environment for the benefit of LGBTQQ attorneys, their allies, and the firm as a whole. Their goal is to spread awareness and enhance LGBT culture within Stroock through LGBT-specific CLEs, speakers, and events. They also focus on community outreach through coordinated partnerships and sponsorships with other LGBT groups, law schools, and other interested organizations.
In the coming year, SSLGBT will spotlight issues that affect the broad spectrum of persons within the LGBT community – including the legal issues involving HIV/AIDS, adoption, marriage, and homeless youth, among others.
