Hinshaw is pleased to bring together Fort Lauderdale Mayor Dean J. Trantalis, Senior Political Director Joe Saunders of Equality Florida, Public Policy Director Mike Ziri of Equality Illinois, and Hinshaw Attorneys Andrew Gordon and Laura Knittle for an important discussion on the Stop the Wrongs to Our Kids and Employees ("Stop W.O.K.E.") and Parental Rights in Education ("Don't Say Gay") legislation that went into effect this year in Florida.
