In College of Law Visit, Kendell Urges Supporters of Same-Sex Marriage to Build Alliances

Kate Kendell, Executive Director of the National Center for Lesbian Rights and a 1988 graduate of the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law, spoke at the College of Law on January 21.

Kendell, who spoke at the invitation of the LGBT-focused OUTlaws College of Law student group, encouraged supporters of same-sex marriage rights to practice tolerance and understanding. “People will be writing about this moment and your courage and your patience and your kindness and your caring, and they will say how they did it in Utah is how we ultimately won,” she said, as reported in The Salt Lake Tribune.
