To the Editor:

I called the law firm phone of Jim Silkenat and read the law firm’s support of gay lawyers and how the firm supports gay rights and fights LGBT discrimination and asked him on his phone service how he could participate in such hate at the New York City event. (“ABA President Withdraws from NYC Russian Investment Forum,” by Andy Humm, online on Nov. 8). I left my number. I then emailed Jim Silkenat with the email address his office gave me. I’m glad my contribution helped get him to resign from the Russia Forum event in New York.
