Join Athlete Ally for our Sixth Annual Action Awards to support our mission of ending the structural and systemicoppression that isolates, excludes, and endangers LGBTQ people in sport. The Action Awards brings together 300+ supporters from around the country, including individuals, corporate funders, and athletes to celebrateadvancements in sports for LGBTQ equality and inclusion, and to commit to the work ahead. The Action Awards raises approximately 30% of Athlete Ally’s annual operating budget, so your support allows us to partner with more professional athletes, teams and leagues to deepen support of and engagement in LGBTQ equality and inclusion.
