Community Builders: Celebrating Pride 

< 1 MIN READ

On July 19, in collaboration with Apt613 and a special partnership with Capital Pride, we recognized six more incredible community builders.  

Our July presentation was extra special because we awarded recipients who are a part of the 2SLGBTQ+ community as well as allies dedicating their work to creating more inclusive communities. Toby Whitfield, Executive Director of Capital Pride, hosted the presentation and helped us surprise these unknowing recipients. From supporting youth through their gender transition to creating an online book club and curation service focused on gender-inclusive and diverse characters or families—local community builders are constantly showing selflessness and care during these unique times.   

These recipients are community leaders and fearless advocates who have stepped up and demonstrated a local love that has not gone unnoticed.   

Award recipients have demonstrated a strong ability to mobilize their communities, going above and beyond their regular volunteerism. They also represent the kind of quiet determination and heroism that inspires others to act—leading by example.   

We thank everyone who takes the time to nominate everyday heroes, and we thank you, community builders, for your exceptional contributions. 

MEET OUR SIX NEW COMMUNITY BUILDERS:

Amanda Jetté Knox, Patrick Bondo, Romeo Penheiro, Jamie Topping, Ciara Wallace Mackenzie, and Esther Csurgai.
