The Annual QLaw Banquet is a celebration of our diverse and vibrant community. We take our community’s health and wellbeing seriously, and given Governor Inslee’s recent orders, we have moved ahead with rescheduling our original date of Friday, March 27.
The 15th Annual QLaw Banquet will now be held on Friday, June 19, just in time to kick off Pride celebrations throughout the Seattle area. We look forward to celebrating with you, our President’s Award Recipient, Aleksa Manila, and Keynote Speaker Justice Montoya-Lewis!
If you purchased an individual ticket for our Friday, March 27 event, it will transfer to our new date of Friday, June 19, no action required. If you are no longer able to attend, please consider turning your ticket into a tax-free donation to the QLaw Foundation.
While we wait for this interruption to pass, please don’t forget that the hard work of the QLaw Foundation doesn’t stop in a pandemic! They have been gearing up for a busy year, making community access to the LGBTQ+ Legal Clinic easier than ever, responding to important LGBTQ+ legal developments (including anticipated decisions from both our state and federal Supreme Courts) with community education, and even in the last week gearing up efforts to provide services to Seattle-area low-wage LGBTQ+ workers impacted by COVID-19. The generosity that you all show at our banquet every year comprises a significant portion of the Foundation’s annual budget, and our communities need you now more than ever! Please consider donating today, and sustaining the Foundation’s important service to those in our LGBTQ+ communities who are most impacted by this crisis.
We appreciate your understanding as we keep the safety of our community at the forefront of our minds. We can’t wait to celebrate together on Friday, June 19. Thank you for your continued support and thank you for being a friend!
