To receive acknowledgement from our peers after 40 years of tirelessly working to improve life for all LGBT people is humbling. This winter CSW received two awards; at the West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce’s Creative City Awards, the 2010 Creative Community Service Award, and Los Angeles Silver Screen Invitational’s– 2010 Achievement Award in recognition of 40 years of service to the community, as well as supporting LASSI through our Working Grants Program.
In recognition of our 40th Anniversary, CSW was acknowledged by many cities as well as both the California Assembly and Senate. There were proclamations from the City of West Hollywood and Sierra Madre, as well as both the City and County of Los Angeles and commendations from the cities of Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach and Irwindale.
We gratefully accept these honors on behalf of the many who give their time and energy toward making PRIDE a memorable celebration for everyone; and look forward to many more years of community service.
