Due Feb. 9: Nominations Sought for LGBT Rights Ingram Award
The LGBT Rights Committee is accepting nominations for the Cheryl Ingram Advocate for Justice Award. Traditionally, the award has gone to a LGBT non-lawyer or a non-LGBT lawyer (to not overlap with GALLOP's annual Michael Greenberg Award, which is awarded annually to a LGBT lawyer). However, this year, the Committee has decided to open the award to any individual who has made substantive contributions to the LGBT community in Philadelphia.
Cheryl was a catalyst in the creation of the Committee on the Legal Rights of Lesbians and Gay Men at the Philadelphia Bar Association and was instrumental in the creation of the Advocate for Justice Award, which recognized the important contributions from allies outside the LGBT legal community to the cause of equality for all.
Please email your nominations to Committee Chair Colin J. Beisel at firstname.lastname@example.org by Feb. 9. Nominations should include a short (less than a page) explanation as to why you feel this person is deserving of the award.
