Hi Friends,

It’s almost Pride month! At A Wider Bridge, we’re getting ready and can’t wait to celebrate with you. So grab your flag, get that glitter, and join us as we celebrate Pride month in both Israel and North America with some exciting programming connecting communities during pride.

Our first Pride event examines the impact that marriage equality has had on the broader LGBTQ rights movement in both Israel and the U.S. Join us on May 26 for our first panel with AWB NY Metro Council Vice-Chair, Lee Jason Goldberg moderating a panel features a conversation between Israeli LGBTQ rights activist Russell Lord and attorney Roberta Kaplan who, among her many accomplishments, successfully represented Edie Windsor before the U.S. Supreme Court.

You don’t want to miss this! RSVP at Registration ahead of time is required for this event. You will be sent the Zoom link upon the day of the event in a confirmation email.

Programs like these depend on your ongoing and generous support. If you are able, please consider making a gift to A Wider Bridge today.
