Bastian co-wrote a “position statement” press release for client NLA and the Alliance Defense Fund about how both groups object to the American Bar Association promoting same-sex “marriage” laws and putting out false indicators that it speaks for all American lawyers on the issue. Both groups pointed out that about three-quarters of American lawyers don’t even belong to the ABA, and many actively work to protect marriage as the union of one man and one woman. Bastian also assisted with the successful national distribution of the press release to key legal and consumer online and print publications. Additionally, she wrote/distributed press releases promoting NLA’s June 2011 annual, national conference as well as an organizational NLA fact sheet used to secure media coverage from national and regional news outlets.
