Champions of Equality 2014

Champions of Equality 2014Friday, May 9, 6pm-10pm - Hyatt Regency Miami, 400 SE 2nd Avenue, Miami

As you may have heard, SAVE and the ACLU of Florida have announced the filing of a groundbreaking lawsuit on behalf of eight married couples to secure recognition from the state of Florida for same-sex marriages performed out-of-state. A pro-equality ruling would grant gay couples married in states that perform same-sex marriages access to many rights and benefits that Florida grants to opposite-sex married couples, such as Social Security survivor benefits and the right to include your spouse on your health insurance policy. Join SAVE’s annual Champions of Equality awards reception and gala, to honor the eight brave couples taking a stand for equality in court. SAVE is also proud to honor State Representative David Richardson, County Commissioner Audrey Edmonson, and filmmaker Joe Cardona. Individual tickets are $125.
