Held once a year in the spring, the George Abel and Mathilde Schwab Dreyfous Lecture brings to Tulane speakers in the area of civil and human rights law. This year's lecturer Catherine E. Lhamon, Chair of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, appointed to a six-year term by President Obama in 2016. Chair Lhamon also serves in the cabinet of California Governor Gavin Newsom, where she has been Legal Affairs Secretary since January 2019, and she previously litigated civil rights cases at the National Center for Youth Law.
The George Abel and Mathilde Schwab Dreyfous Lecture on Civil Liberties and Human Rights was established in 1965 to honor George Abel Dreyfous, the founder of the Louisiana Affiliate of the American Civil Liberties Union and a Southern pioneer and leader in the field of civil liberties. In 2003, the title of the lecture series was changed to honor both Mr. Dreyfous and his wife, Mathilde Schwab Dreyfous, a tireless community volunteer and activist who worked closely with her husband towards an end to segregation and discrimination against African-Americans. Hosted by the School of Law.

Tulane University's Audre Lorde Days offer multiple opportunities during spring semester for students, faculty, staff, and community members to come together to "develop tools for using human difference as a springboard for creative change." These may include academic lectures, workshops, concerts, comedy, or other experiences and are held throughout spring semester. Admission to all events is always free and open to the public.
Like the work of Lorde herself, the experiences combine critical analysis and love, lyricism and research, as well as struggle and collaboration (1) to address the ways in which inequity, bias, discrimination, alienation, and violence undermine our individual, collective, and planetary health and (2) to develop holistic analyses and strategies for fueling well-being, justice, and positive social change. Central to all events will be a consideration for how students, researchers, faculty, staff, and communities can create meaningful, reciprocal, accountable, and thriving relationships within the context of racism, sexism, heteronormativity, economic disparity, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, and town/gown divides.
This series is sponsored by the Office of Gender and Sexual Diversity, along with multiple campus collaborators such as the Office of Multicultural Affairs, the Gender & Sexuality Studies Program, and various student organizations. If your department or organization is planning an event which would fit the parameters of Audre Lorde Days, contact the Director for the Office for Gender & Sexual Diversity- Petey Peterson at, email@example.com to discuss collaboration and co-sponsorship.
