TICKETS NOW ON-SALE at www.equalitymaine.org/Gala
Hope. Courage. Strength.
Now more than ever, it's critical for us stand together as a community. To remember that in the face of overwhelming odds we've never given up HOPE. Even in the depths of despair, we've found the COURAGE to get back up and continue our work. And in both victory and defeat, we've always found STRENGTH in one another...in our community!
We hope you'll join us for our 33rd Annual Gala & Silent Auction!
