Four LGBT rights advocates are scheduled to speak at the fiftieth anniversary of the 1963 Rights March on Washington on August 24: the American Federation of Teachers president Randi Weingarten, Service Employees International Union president Kay Henry, Human Rights Campaign’s faith partnership and mobilization director Reverend MacArthur Flournoy, and Equality Pennsylvania president Adrian Shanker.

As the grandson of Albert Shanker, who organized thousands of teachers for the 1963 march, Adrian Shanker has advocated for LGBT rights for almost ten years.
