CSW Board Member Receives Keeper of the Dream Award
Posted on: January 24, 2011
Christopher Street West’s board member Karnia Samala will receive the Keeper of the Dream Award, from the City of West Hollywood.
The Award honors an individual who has demonstrated exceptional community leadership while embracing Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s philosophy that “… every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.”
Karina lives these principles every single day. She has been a driving force in the Southern California Transgender Community and is regularly called upon to help younger transgender people in crisis.[more]
