Dr Adiva Sifris on Marriage Equality (Melb, Sat July 30, 2011)

Communal lunch and guest speaker
” Marriage Equality”

Shira would like to invite you to a Communal Kiddush Lunch on July 30th, after our shul service (around 12pm) where we will hear from Dr Adiva Sifris, a senior lecturer at Monash University Law School. Dr Sifris is recognised as an expert in the area of Family Law, with a particular interest in same-sex parenting.  She recently co-edited a collection of essays entitled Current Trends in the Regulation of Same-Sex Relationships.

The talk aims to discuss some of the issues, and is particularly topical in light of the recent legalisation of same sex marriages in New York City. Shira would like this to be a completely inclusive event, where people from all walks of life are made welcome and feel comfortable.
