IT IS ALMOST HERE — the 2018 Twentieth Anniversary Acclaim Awards Gala is this Saturday! As we prepare for a new year of accomplishments and potential challenges, we want to honor an inspiring leader that has made a tremendous impact on equality here in Louisiana: Governor John Bel Edwards.
As part of his efforts, he has supported the LGBT community by issuing an executive order protecting gay and transgender state employees, state contractors and recipients of state services. He helped secure New Orleans as the venue for the 2017 NBA All-Star Game by promoting the rich diversity and inclusiveness of our great state and the city itself. In addition, Gov. Edwards has employed members of the LGBT community in his office and administration.
We are proud to have a Governor that exemplifies the Louisiana values of union, justice and confidence. Please stand with us as we honor him with the 2018 Acclaim Award for his political leadership.
We hope you will come out and join us Saturday night for the Twentieth Annual Acclaim Awards gala. It is definitely not a night to be missed! You can find more information about the Acclaim Awards and purchase your tickets here!
