Marriage Equality: From Outlaws to In-LawsOctober 6, 2020 • 12:00PM – 1:00PM EDT • LIVE ONLINE
As William Eskridge and coauthor, Christopher Riano, argue in their new book, Marriage Equality: From Outlaws to In‐​Laws, the Supreme Court’s 2015 ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges requiring states to recognize same‐​sex marriages came faster and with broader public support than anyone would have thought possible in 2001. This new book tells the inside story of the judicial deliberations in marriage equality cases but also defends these decisions from the perspective of the original public meaning of the Fourteenth Amendment, constitutional precedents, the institution of marriage itself, and even sincere and learned analyses of scripture. The authors conclude with three chapters about the contours of ongoing debates about religious liberty, the relationship options that states ought to recognize, and abortion. Featuring William Eskridge, Coauthor, Yale Law School; Steven Calabresi, Northwestern Pritzker School of Law; Maggie Gallagher, National Organization for Marriage; moderated by Ilya Shapiro, Cato Institute. During the event, submit questions on Twitter using #CatoSCOTUS, Facebook Live, or in the comment box on the event page.
School Choice Myths: Setting the Record Straight on Education FreedomOctober 7, 2020 • 12:00PM – 1:00PM EDT • LIVE ONLINE
School choice has grown a lot since 1990—from zero kids taking public education funds to private schools to over a half million doing so—but progress has been slow. One reason: a constant drumbeat of myths, including that choice cripples public schools, undermines democracy, and leaves poor kids behind. In the new Cato book School Choice Myths: Setting the Record Straight on Education Freedom, top scholars dispel 12 of the most pernicious myths. The book will be officially released on October 7, and several contributors will be available to respond to your questions and comments.Think about the biggest myths you’d like the contributors to address, and send them our way now using #CatoCEF or on various platforms during the event. Featuring Patrick Wolf, University of Arkansas; Tim Keller, Institute for Justice; Inez Feltscher Stepman, Independent Women’s Forum; Ben Scafidi, Kennesaw State University; Corey DeAngelis, Reason Foundation; moderated by Neal McCluskey, Cato Institute
