Kirby Hall of Civil Rights 104
Steve Hyman '62

Interested in hearing more about current free speech issues? Wondering how free speech can be viewed through a social justice lens? Come hear civil rights and civil liberties attorney Steve Hyman talk about this and other issues on Thursday, November 9th at 7:00pm in Kirby Hall of Civil Rights 104.

Steve Hyman is a Lafayette alum from the class of 1962.  As a Jewish student at a time when most Lafayette students were Christian, he began to consider how issues of identity related to his interactions on campus. Mr. Hyman’s commitment to social justice grew out of his experience as a student at Lafayette.

Steve Hyman has argued cases in from of the United States Supreme Court. In 2014, he successfully helped Ebola nurse Kaci Hickox fight New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s mandatory quarantine order. He recently filed an amicus brief with the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of a group of SUNY Binghamton professors who are researching the issue of gerrymandering.

Please join us when we welcome Steve Hyman to campus as part of our Social Justice Events series: "When Lafayette was Male, White, and Christian: A Crucible for Social Justice."
