2017 BALIF Sponsorship

We invite your firm/company to sponsor BALIF, the oldest and largest LGBT Bar Association in the country, and the 37th Annual BALIF Gala: We will Rise!

Why support BALIF? 

    • Supporting BALIF supports BALIF’s work on amicus briefs, resolutions to the Conference of Delegates of California Bar Associations, the appointment of LGBT attorneys to public service and leadership (including the judiciary, public agencies, and public commissions), and BALIF’s community activism and service projects.

      • BALIF supports diversity in the legal profession by providing critical LGBT networking opportunities, including an attorney mentorship program that connects law students and junior lawyers with more experienced attorneys.

        • BALIF strengthens the LGBT and other marginalized communities by partnering with other minority bar associations and organizations on social action initiatives, social events, scholarships/fellowships, and MCLE courses. 

          Help Us Celebrate Our Awardees!

          • 2017 Legal Service Award goes to the Center for Immigration Protection.  Among other things, the Center for Immigration Protection has launched The LGBT Asylum Project, which offers pro-bono legal representation to vulnerable LGBT immigrants fleeing persecution abroad and seeking protection in the United States.
          • 2017 Community Service Award goes to the TGI Justice Project (“TGIJP”).  TGIJP’s mission is to challenge and end the human rights abuses committed against transgender, gender variant and intersex people in California Prisons and beyond.
