NEW YORK, Sept. 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Lambda Legal announces ONE Lambda Legal—a first-of-its-kind fundraising campaign fueled entirely by dedicated volunteers across the country working together to raise $5 million to support Lambda Legal's important work. While fundraising efforts kicked off at the beginning of 2021 in response to the need to pivot from in-person to virtual events—the campaign will culminate with a conference-style celebration from October 4 th through October 8 th.
The online celebration will feature appearances by up-and-coming talent, providing attendees the opportunity to participate in entertainment and social programming--creating virtual opportunities to meet and socialize with other volunteers and supporters from across the country. Notable speakers include comedians Judy Gold and Dewayne Perkins; musician Joy Olakdokun; Chefs Deborah Van Trece and Zac Young; actor, comedian, writer Guy Branum; graphic artist Cheyne Gallard, and more. Most of the events are complimentary to the public through sign-up at www.onelambdalegal.org .
"This grassroots support of our volunteers has driven and sustained us for nearly 50 years, with annual in-person fundraising events providing critical funding for our mission. The pandemic required that we find new ways to inspire our community through peer-to-peer fundraising and virtual programming. Our team worked together to create ONE Lambda Legal," says Jeff Souva, Deputy Director of Development, Lambda Legal.
We invite you to join us and become one of the thousands of dedicated volunteers across the country whose support will continue to fuel our work advocating for the civil rights of LGBTQ people and everyone living with HIV.
