Liberty Awards National Dinner: 2013 Event

Lambda Legal's 2013 Liberty Awards National Dinner and 40th Anniversary Celebration took place on May 6th, 2013 at Pier Sixty, Chelsea Piers in New York City.

With the help of over 900 supporters, we raised over one million dollars as we celebrated Lambda Legal’s 40th Anniversary, honored the volunteers of Jeffrey Fashion Cares for 10 years of service, and saluted our sister legal defense funds who do critical civil rights work alongside us.

We were also deeply moved to receive a surprise tribute from the President of the United States.  As President Obama said, “Change only comes when ordinary Americans stand up and demand it. And that’s what everyone at Lambda Legal has done for the past 40 years.”

In addition, Mayor Michael Bloomberg proclaimed May 6, 2013 "Lambda Legal Day" in New York City!

While we are extremely proud of the past 40 years worth of progress, our work is far from done. Thank you for helping us continue to stand up and demand change.
