At this year's annual gala, hundreds of leaders and partners in the LGBTQ family justice and education movement came together to celebrate our wins and gather resources to support Our Family Coalition's work in the future. Check out our Facebook photo album to see how much fun we all had!
This year we were proud to honor three powerful advocates for our families:
- Tony Prophet, founding Chief Equality Officer at Salesforce, will be receiving our Ally Award on behalf of Salesforce for their work advancing gender, LGBTQ, and racial equity at Salesforce and beyond.
- Evan Low, California State Assemblymember representing 28th District, will receive our Luminary Award for his work advancing equity for LGBTQ Californians as the co-chair of the California Legislative LGBT Caucus.
- Shayna Cureton, of Abundant Beginnings, will receive our Community Partner Award on behalf of their team for Abundant’s amazing activism work to create social change in our schools and our communities.
- We’ll also be launching a thrilling new Emeritus Board that will harvest the brain trust of OFC’s over twenty years of change-making and support. Stay tuned!
We thank the following organizations and individuals whose generosity helps make the work we do possible:
Thanks also to the many Neighbor and Friend-level sponsors who continue to support our advocacy in the capitol, the schools, and the community:
