Our outstanding speakers include Kathryn Kolbert, currently Director of the Athena Center for Leadership Studies at Barnard College. Ms. Kolbert is a renowned civil rights attorney and former President of People For the American Way (PFAW). Previously she oversaw a program on law and American life at the University of Pennsylvania's Annenberg Public Policy Center. In 1992 she argued before the U.S. Supreme Court in Planned Parenthood v. Casey, which preserved a woman's constitutional right to reproducrive choice. She also co-founded the Center for Reproductive Law and Policy and has a long career as a public interest attorney.
