The Boston Bar Association is proud to honor GLAD (Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders) and the Massachusetts Attorney General's Office for their work as lawyers in advancing same sex marriage and for effectively expanding the meaning of Diversity and Inclusion through their effort to challenge the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), a statute that discriminates against legally married same-sex couples.
