Wasserstein Fellows do great and courageous things. Mary Bonauto, Civil Rights Project Director at Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders (GLAD) is (and has been) no exception. As a Wasserstein Fellow during the 2004-2005 year, she mentored law students thinking about pursuing careers in civil rights and civil liberties. She is currently (and has been for a long time) at the foreground of the battle for LGBT rights and DOMA. This article in the New York Times profiles her fight, along with mentions of two other HLS alums, Evan Wolfson and Jenny Wiggins.
