The Center for Gender and Sexuality Law's Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) Project invites you to a free online screening of the documentary My Name Is Pauli Murray. The screening will be followed by a live Q&A with ERA Project Director, Ting Ting Cheng, and Betsy West and Julie Cohen -- the film's directors and Columbia alums.

The film looks at the life and ideas of Pauli Murray, a non-binary Black lawyer, activist, Episcopalian priest and poet who influenced both Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Thurgood Marshall.

This event is hosted by the ERA Project, a law and policy think tank established in January 2021 to develop academically rigorous research, policy papers, expert guidance, and strategic leadership on the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) to the U.S. Constitution, and on the role of the ERA in advancing the larger cause of gender-based justice.
