Our Hearts are Broken, but our Resolve is Strong.
It is with heavy hearts that we reach out to LeGaL’s members and friends with news of devastating loss of our longtime board member, Richard Weber, to Coronavirus complications.
We cherish Richard’s memory and hold his partner, Antonio, and family in our hearts. Richard gave generously of his time and talents to improve the lives of LGBTQ New Yorkers. It is in his honor that we continue to steadfastly dedicate ourselves to our mission of advancing equality in and through the legal profession.
We continue to provide critical free legal services to vulnerable members of our community through our 24-hour legal helpline (212) 353–9118. Please spread the word if anyone is looking for help or support.
We urge our members and friends to stay safe and healthy. Protect yourselves, friends and family. We are all in this together.
We will continue to pursue equality and justice with Richard’s memory and generous spirit in our hearts.
Eric Lesh, Executive Director
Kristen Prata Browde, Board President
