Why the Austin LGBT Bar Association Walks
The Austin LGBT Bar Association is happy to again participate in AIDS Walk Austin. Members of this organization for LGBT and ally attorneys have strong ties to AIDS Services of Austin, and consider the Walk an important part of its mission to promote LGBT interests through engagement with the community.
The Association is a relatively new organization, only started in 2011. In that time it's created a number of service programs. In addition to developing LGBT legal education programs for attorneys in Austin and across Texas, the Association also developed a mentor program for students at the University of Texas School of Law, and just last year launched a scholarship program for LGBT and ally law students at Texas law schools.
The Association also participates in community events of interest to the LGBT community, such as Austin Pride and, for four years now, AIDS Walk Austin.
Several members of the Association's leadership also have strong volunteer ties to ASA. Founding board member Fred Sultan, an attorney at Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP, is also on the ASA Board of Directors. Member Kimmi Selinger, attorney at Eric Wright & Associates, is also a board member, and, along with Elliott Beck, co-founded INK, a young professional organization, spun out from The Octopus Club, which raises money for ASA's Paul Kirby Emergency Assistance Fund.
"We invite everyone - LGBT, allies, and alike - to join The Association's team," Elliott said.
