Bruce,

As summer winds down, we're winding up to celebrate a banner
year for the LGBT community with our Equality Awards gala on
September 19th at the JW Marriott Hotel in Downtown Los
Angeles. It will be a special evening at which we will
celebrate the successes of 2015, honor our heroes, and
reflect on the fight ahead.

Please join us! Tickets are on sale now here:

This year, we're pleased to honor award-winning journalist
and self-described "fierce advocate for gay rights," Lisa
Ling, who regularly features LGBT people, our triumphs,
struggles and stories in her work, and who currently hosts
the CNN documentary series, This is Life; businessman and
non-profit founder Tom Steyer, whose philanthropy and
political activism have made a significant and lasting
impact in advancing health, wellbeing and social justice
for LGBT people and all the communities of which we're a
part; California Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León, a
staunch ally and supporter of the LGBT community who has
earned a pro-equality rating of 100 percent on Equality
California's Legislative Scorecard each year; and former
EQCA board presidents Clarissa Filgioun and Cary Davidson,
who led EQCA's civil rights work during a period of
significant achievement for our community. Davidson will
also receive EQCA's Lifetime Achievement Award in
recognition of not only his service to Equality California,
but to the Jewish community and numerous LGBT and
progressive organizations. Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia
and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti will be joining the
celebration.

This year's landmark marriage equality ruling from the U.S.
Supreme Court caps decades of work by Equality California
and our allied organizations, but our fight is not over. In
California, transgender people are the target of yet another
discriminatory ballot measure and, across the country, LGBT
people can still be fired, evicted or denied service because
they're LGBT.

Help us continue the fight by purchasing a ticket or

We can't do what we do without you.

Thank you, and I look forward to seeing you there!

Executive Director----
