Supreme Court Victor Edie Windsor Lends
Support to WJCS Center Lane
Edie Windsor, center above, victor in the landmark Supreme Court case supporting marriage equality, offered her support to the WJCS Center Lane program, the only LGBTQ youth and community education center in Westchester County. Ms. Windsor spoke at an event last night, along with Center Lane representatives, from left, Robert Voorheis, Santo Barbagiovanni, Brentin Brown and Michael Sabatino.
Ms. Windsor called attention to the many issues still confronting LGBTQ youth, including social isolation, abuse and homelessness.
WJCS honored Ms. Windsor's iconic victory and attendees heard from WJCS staff and Center Lane participants about the challenges they have conquered through the support of the WJCS Center Lane program.
WJCS thanks supporters of LGBTQ youth who attended as well as Fairway Market, which made a generous donation to the event.
Those who could not attend can still support Westchester LGBTQ youth in leading healthy lives in a supportive environment. Click here to donate.
