First Equal Marriage Congress of Latin America


ICAL Alumnus (2011) and Outstanding Alumnus Herman Duarte is on the organization committee of the first equal marriage congress of the latin american region, which will take place in November 2017.

I Congreso de Matrimonio Civil entre Personas del Mismo Sexo, which will take place on 8-11 November 2017, is the first of its kind in Latin America.  Over 27 speakers of more than 15 nationalities will gather in San José, Costa Rica, to discuss and debate on equal marriage.  The Congress benefits from the support of the United Nations, multiple foreign embassies, law firms and key associations. 

Sitting in an organization committee of three, ICAL Alumnus (2011) Herman Duarte received this year the Outstanding ICAL Alumnus distinction in recognition of his efforts to obtain equal rights to same sex couples in El Salvador.  Herman has submitted a constitutional challenge against the Family Code of El Salvador that prevents same sex couples to marry.
