The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act — a.k.a. Obamacare — remains highly controversial and faces ongoing legal and political challenges. Polls show that by a large margin Americans remain opposed to the healthcare law. However, the question is: replace it with what?

The Council for Global Equality, Freedom House, Human Rights First, Human Rights Campaign, Advocates for Youth, RFK Center for Justice and Human Rights, and American Jewish World Service in cooperation with the Congressional LGBT Equality Caucus, invite you to a special briefing with remarks by the Special Envoy for the Rights of LGBT Persons Randy Berry. 

Wednesday, June 22, 2015 

4:00 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. – Opening Remarks and Panel Discussion 

5:30 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. – Reception

Join us for a discussion of the unique role the United States can play in supporting the inherent human rights of LGBT persons around the world.

Human rights for LGBT persons have reached a unique moment in history. While great progress has been made for equal rights, LGBT persons still face harsh discrimination, unequal access to healthcare, fear of violence, and, in some cases, legal persecution. The panel will include two activists from Russia and Uganda who will provide insights into the complicated situation for LGBT communities in their countries.

Opening Remarks
Mark P. Lagon President, Freedom House

Congressman David Cicilline (D-RI) Co-Chair, Congressional LGBT Equality Caucus

Designer Drugs: A New Futile Front in the War on Illegal Drugs?

Policy Forum
July 20, 2015 12:00PM to 1:30PM
Richard & Sue Ann Masson Policy Center
Cato Institute
1000 Massachusetts Avenue NW
Featuring Ted Galen Carpenter, Senior Fellow, Cato Institute; with comments by Eric Sterling, President, The Criminal Justice Policy Foundation; and Jacob Hornberger, President, The Future of Freedom Foundation; moderated by Christopher Preble, Vice President for Defense and Foreign Policy Studies, Cato Institute.
News organizations have recently documented the proliferation of synthetic or “designer” drugs that produce physical and psychological effects similar to those of traditional mind-altering substances such as marijuana, cocaine, and heroin. Policymakers have scrambled to outlaw substances that can sometimes regain legal status with a modest change in chemical makeup. Some of the new drugs even masquerade as such innocuous, perfectly legal products as air fresheners or potpourri. Can these new mind-altering substances be outlawed without resorting to tortured legal rationales? Are there alternatives to a prohibitionist strategy? Could policymakers better promote public safety by requiring strict production standards, but not attempting to ban their use? Cato senior fellow Ted Galen Carpenter will discuss his recent study on synthetic drugs, followed by a discussion with other experts on the future of drug policy in the United States.
