SOUTH DAKOTANS AGAINST DISCRIMINATION NAMES TODD EPP AS CONSULTANT
SIOUX FALLS --South Dakotans Against Discrimination (SDAD), the grassroots group opposing Amendment C, announces that Harrisburg attorney and activist Todd Epp will be its legal and communications consultant.
"Todd offers a unique combination of legal experience and communications skills that will assist us in educating the public and the media as to why Amendment C, the ban on "quasi-marital relationships," should be defeated," according to Jon Hoadley, SDAD’s campaign manager.
Epp is a former local broadcaster for S.D. Public TV and KSFY-TV and a freelance writer. He is admitted to practice before the state and federal courts of Kansas and South Dakota and 8th and 10th United States Circuit Courts of Appeal. His practice concentrates on workers rights, litigation, and intellectual property. He has had legal and scholarly articles published in the Washburn Law Review, Kansas History, South Dakota History, and the International Journal of Comparative and Applied Criminal Justice. He has a B.A. in history and English from Washburn University of Topeka, a J.D. from Washburn University School of Law, and an LL.M. from the University of Houston Law Center.
"Defeating Amendment C and ensuring that all families are treated fairly with basic legal protections is a civil rights issue," Epp said. I look forward to working with Jon and the SDAD membership in defeating this hateful and unnecessary amendment to the South Dakota Constitution."
Epp, 47, is married to Donna Epp, Ph.D. and they are the parents to two school aged children. Todd is active in coaching youth soccer, playing with his three dogs, blogging, and political activism.
Good luck Todd with your new position.
