On July 15, 2020 Chosen Family Law Center hosted its inaugural fundraising event!
This event was emceed by NYC's #1 cheeky drag king Wang Newton and featured Chosen Family Law Center Executive Director Diana Adams, Senior Legal Director Andy Izenson, Trans People of Color Coalition founder Kylar Broadus, Trans Lifeline Executive Director Elena Rose Vera, and other special guests.
Learn about the work CFLC is doing to make a life-saving impact for low-income LGBTQIA clients & how you can be a part of that positive change.
**75% of the proceeds of our month-long fundraiser will be earmarked specifically for direct legal services to Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) LGBTQIA clients. If we hit our goal, the total will be matched 100%!**
We invite you to join CFLC Executive Director Diana Adams and many special guests for our first virtual event! We're sorry we can’t bring you yummy cocktails or hors d’oeuvres, but we’re here to host important conversations from those working round-the-clock to change the world for the better.
Our virtual fundraiser was originally planned for mid-June for #Pride, but we pushed the online event date back to July 15 to focus on outreach and support efforts for the Black Lives Matter movement, particularly our LGBTQIA+ communities and clients of color, who are among the most vulnerable. We stand in solidarity with Black community and will be continuing to dedicate resources and energy there.Our Senior Legal Director Andy Izenson is the President of the NYC chapter of the National Lawyers Guild and has been working overtime providing organizing, legal, and jail support to the Black Lives Matter protests and in the fight against police brutality. We are committed to a diversity of tactics in service of justice, autonomy, and self-determination for all families; we consider it an integral part of our work to secure for every parent, sibling, and partner the right to be free from the fear that one’s family members will be murdered or disappeared by law enforcement.
CFLC provides educational and legal support to low-income LGBTQIA+ individuals, families, and asylum seekers to protect themselves with the legal stability they deserve. We believe in justice for all families, and we’re using our legal and educational resources to make that possible.
Our clients need our help now more than ever. Our project areas include:
Funds raised through this month-long campaign will be matched by generous donors up to $11,000, so please take this opportunity to stand with the LGBTQIA+ community and help make sure every family - regardless of who they’re made up of - has legal access to live the life they choose.
Thank you for supporting Chosen Family Law Center!
