The 29th Annual Liberty Awards Dinner is Lambda Legal's premier national event. Attracting individual and corporate supporters from the New York metro area as well as from across the country, the Liberty Awards annually raises $1 million for Lambda Legal. The 2015 Liberty Awards National Dinner will be an evening of tribute to those who have made an impact on the lives of LGBT and HIV-affected people.

   

Tie The Knot

Using a fun play on words, Tie The Knot was founded by Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Justin Mikita to raise awareness and advocate on behalf of LGBT equality throughout the world. Combining elements of art, style & entertainment, Tie The Knot releases limited edition collections of neckwear and other fashionable products. Each collection features a single bow by a celebrity guest designer who lends their voice to the fight for LGBT equality. Proceedes from the sales of the collections provide substantial financial contributions to organizations leading the fight.

As a part of Tie The Knot’s public education efforts, Tie The Knot held a Bow Tie Lobby Day in January of 2013 and rallied with the citizens of Illinois as the state’s marriage equality bill came to vote, which would eventually pass and make Illinois the sixteenth state with marriage equality. In addition, Tie The Knot keeps an active blog on its website, and through an active social media presence across diverse platforms, informs an audience of over 30,000 followers on the progress of the LGBT equality movement.

Mercedes-Benz USA

Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA), headquartered in Montvale, New Jersey, is responsible for the distribution, marketing and customer service for all Mercedes-Benz products in the United States.

MBUSA offers drivers the most diverse line-up in the luxury segment with 14 model lines ranging from

the sporty CLA-Class four-door coupe to the flagship S-Class. MBUSA is also responsible for the distribution, marketing and customer service of Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Vans, and smart products in the U.S.

With a commitment to diversity and equality demonstrated through LGBT-inclusive employee policies and corporate culture, MBUSA leads by example. By fostering equality internally, and partnering with organizations like Lambda Legal to promote it publicly, MBUSA is truly a corporate leader for LGBT people nationwide.

Lambda Legal is proud to honor Tie The Knot and MBUSA with 2015 Liberty Awards.
