Primary Beneficiary for 2015 Benefit: The Matthew Shepard Foundation
We are excited to announce that AspenOut has partnered with The Matthew Shepard Foundation for the Moguls of Equality Benefit Dinner on January 14, 2015.
The Matthew Shepard Foundation
The Matthew Shepard Foundation was founded by Dennis and Judy Shepard in memory of their 21-year old son, Matthew, who was murdered in an anti-gay hate crime in Wyoming in October 1998. Created to honor Matthew in a manner that was appropriate to his dreams, beliefs, and aspirations, the Foundation seeks to “Replace Hate with Understanding, Compassion, & Acceptance” through its varied educational, outreach and, advocacy programs and by continuing to tell Matthew’s story.
Our ChallengeSince 1998, the Foundation has shared Matthew Shepard’s story with an estimated 300 million people across the globe. Working together with their allies, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans have made tremendous progress in gaining civil rights protections and social acceptance. Thanks in part to the work of the Foundation, we have federal hate crimes legislation that protects people based on their sexual orientation and gender identity. But there is so much more to be done.In nearly half of all the United States, you can still be fired for being gay. In less than a quarter of them can you legally marry the person you love. And of most personal concern to the Shepard Family, every day, thousands of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth are bullied and every year a few, like Matthew, are killed. And far too many succumb to tragically taking their own lives.
