Wolfson wrote his Harvard Law School thesis on same-sex marriage long before it became a topic of national & local activism. He founded Freedom to Marry in 2001, serving as its president until the Supreme Court’s historic 2015 decision guaranteeing marriage equality.

Between November 16-December 14, the Library Staff Association (LiSA) is holding a food drive, with drop-off locations in several Yale libraries. We invite everyone to donate non-perishable food items and personal care items to benefit IRIS (Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services), a New Haven-based agency that helps resettle refugees in CT and provide lifesaving support to assist in their transition to life in the United States. Your donations will go toward stocking the apartments of resettled refugees and the IRIS food pantry.
