A Generous Gift from Sara Ramirez

Dear Friends,

I recently had the honor of visiting The San Diego LGBT Community Center, and I was so inspired by the comprehensive array of services and programs. But there was one story that really got to me. The story of Isaac and his mother, Monica, illustrates the importance of The Center and why it’s incumbent on all of us to support its tremendous work.

As a fierce mom determined to protect her transgender son, Monica found the support and resources she needed through The Center’s Nicole Murray Ramirez Latin@ Services and Project TRANS. Her son, Isaac, found other people who had transitioned and gained the hope that he could become the person he had dreamed of.

The Center was there for this amazing family as they navigated Isaac’s transition. Center staff provided information on medical resources so Isaac’s physical transition could be healthy and safe. They ensured that Monica had the resources to educate his schools, also to keep him safe. The Center was there with this family as they struggled with fears of deportation, and was there as they celebrated becoming American citizens.

A supportive, connected community can make a huge difference to all who are part of it. The San Diego LGBT Community Center provides that support and connection to thousands and thousands of people every year.

As a member of the LGBT community, as an immigrant and as someone with deep roots in San Diego, I believe the work of The Center is essential to creating a safer and more equal society. In that spirit, I am committed to supporting that work with my voice and resources. Today, I’m asking you to join me in that effort.

I will match every dollar — up to $50,000 — that is given during The Center’s end-of-year fundraising campaign.

TO DONATE: PLEASE CLICK HERE

I wholeheartedly hope you will give as generously as you can to The Center today. Together, we can make sure that The Center’s work continues to support and strengthen our precious community.

With pride,
Sara Ramirez
Artist, Actress, Activist
