Centerlink, the Community of LGBT Centers, that serves 200 community centers across the country and a handful around the world, is a finalist in the White House LGBT Pride Month Video Challenge.
In April, the White House Office of Public Engagement launched the LGBT Pride Month Champions of Change Video Challenge to explore the stories of unsung heroes and local leaders who are making an impact in their communities. The group of 6 finalists will be featured as Champions of Change at an event at the White House in July.
We here at NYC’s LGBT Center strongly encourage you to watch all the inspiring videos and consider casting your vote for Centerlink, an organization that works tirelessly to support LGBT community centers across the country and around the world. The Centerlink video showcases that vital work, and features information about our own NYC LGBT Center from Executive Director, Glennda Testone. You can learn more about Centerlink here.
