What does Lambda Legal do? I’ll let them tell you:
Founded in 1973, Lambda Legal is the oldest and largest national legal organization whose mission is to achieve full recognition of the civil rights of lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgender people, and everyone living with HIV through impact litigation, education, and public policy work.
As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, we do not charge our clients for legal representation or advocacy, and we receive no government funding. We depend on contributions from supporters around the country.
As a member of the LGBTQ+ community myself, Lambda Legal is an organization near and dear to my heart. I’ve volunteered with them in the past and can personally attest that they are some of the kindest and most compassionate folks (and lawyers!) you will ever meet. More than that, their dedication to this work is absolutely critical in today’s political climate.
Planning a wedding can feel trivial in a world where there is so much hatred, violence, and injustice. Giving back to progressive organizations is a small way we can help fight that together. I know I struggle with the question of whether I’m doing enough to make things better for my fellow humans. And since you’re reading this page on my website, I bet you are the kind of people who worry about these things too.
So I decided to put my money where my mouth is:
» Every time I book a wedding, I donate $50 to an organization working towards social justice, full equality for all people, protecting this one planet we have, and generally making the world a better place.
Every calendar month, I select a different progressive group to give to. Together we will help fund the hard work that so many amazing people and organizations are doing.
This program launched in May 2017, and I am grateful to clients like you who’ve joined with me in donating to these fantastic organizations:
