Why sponsor the Stonewall Bar Association of Georgia?
Stonewall was established in 1995 as a voluntary coalition of attorneys, judges, law students, paralegals, and other legal professionals. Our mission is to use our professional expertise to support the rights of LGBTQ+ people and oppose discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. We publish an online directory of attorneys willing to serve and respond to the needs of LGBTQ+ clients and distribute a quarterly newsletter to hundreds of legal professionals.
Your support allows us to offer important programming for both lawyers and laypersons, including: a law student mentoring program, scholarships for law students to attend the Lavender Law Conference and Career Fair sponsored by the National LGBT Bar Association, CLEs, and social and networking events for attorneys, law students, and other legal professionals.
In 2020, Stonewall's Board of Directors voted to establish a the Stonewall Racial Justice Grant Program to award funds to organization(s) whose work amplifies Stonewall's commitment to the LGBTQ community during this time of reckoning with racial justice. Sponsorships for the 2020-2021 year went to this grant program to benefit organizations serving the Black transgender and gender non-binary community. Stonewall believes that this program will have a profound effect on underserved populations in our community by providing actionable, relevant assistance during this pivotal time. The deadline for sponsorship pledges for the grant program is June 30, 2021.
With your help, we can continue our commitment to quality programming, education, and engaged action. If you have any questions, or would like to discuss your current or future sponsorship, please reach out to Melissa Fox.
