Get to know the Western Region


Seattle has led the way in the Pacific Northwest in support of Lambda Legal and our work. A diverse network of volunteers contributes their time and treasure to raising crucial funds. The annual Seattle Garden Party has taken place every August on the beautiful grounds of Susan Benson’s garden in Queen Anne. While we can’t gather in the garden this year, we are committed to raising the same amount and doing our part to reach our national goal.  

San Francisco

For the last 11 years, a group of dedicated volunteers has hosted the annual San Francisco Soiree. Every Spring, the San Francisco community gathers in the City by the Bay to demonstrate their commitment to equality. San Francisco has always been a leader in the fight for LGBTQ rights and we are proud to be a part of that tradition. We hope you support us and help us achieve our goal.  

Southern California

One Lambda Legal online event at www.onelambdalegal.com

Southern California has been home to Lambda Legal’s Western Region Office for the last 20 years. Each year, volunteers from Los Angeles to San Diego organize house parties, cocktails receptions, and galas in support of Lambda Legal’s invaluable work. This year, we are coming together to demonstrate Southern California’s commitment to full lived and legal equality. You can be part of it. Please join us.

For over a decade, volunteers from the Grand Canyon State have supported Lambda Legal’s work to rebalance the scales of justice. Each Spring, supporters come together to celebrate the progress achieved to date and raise money for the challenges that lie ahead. We are looking forward to showing our commitment to this cause that means so much to us.  

Thank you to our Western Sponsors
