The LOFT Mourns the Loss of Edie Windsor

The LOFT: LGBT Community Center mourns the loss of civil rights pioneer Edie Windsor. In 2012, we had the honor of presenting her with an award in her namesake which embodied her and her late wife’s pursuit for civil justice, The Edie Windsor & Thea Spyer Equality Award. In 2013, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld her case against the United States government striking down DOMA. Since she first attended The LOFT Gala 5 years ago, Edie has been back to present her award to other exemplary LGBT advocates. She was scheduled to be with us again at this year's event. We know she is with us in spirit…a spirit that will live on by guiding us forward in the march for equality.

Please read more about Edie's inspirational legacy with The LOFT below.

T.E.A.M. LOFT-Making Strides for Breast Cancer Awareness Walk

T.E.A.M. LOFT is forming a team to walk in the Making Strides for Breast Cancer Awareness Walk at Manhattanville College next month. You can join our team or donate to the cause.

Sunday, October 15th at 9.30am                                                      

Location: Manhattanville College,Purchase, NY.

The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks raise awareness and funds to save lives from breast cancer. Each event is a noncompetitive 3 to 5 mile walk that brings people together to make a difference for everyone who has been touched by breast cancer. The events raise money to fund innovative research, provide free information and support, and to help people reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it's most treatable.

From the opening ceremony to the post-walk entertainment, a Making Strides event is a celebration of survivors and opportunity to remember loved-ones lost. It's a day that shouldn't be missed and won't be forgotten.
