Stage 48, 605 West 48th Street, New York, NY 10036
The Tyler Clementi Foundation’s Upstander Legacy Gala is a festive and fabulous evening dedicated to celebrating our work to end online and offline bullying as we name two champions of our work as our 2019 Upstanders! (You can see photos from 2018 here!) We’ll be in a new venue (Stage 48, 605 W. 48th Street in New York City) with amazing food and beverage options and look forward to announcing how far we’ve come since last year’s launch of the Million Upstander Movement!
INDIVIDUAL UPSTANDER AWARD

David mobilized LGBTQ+ political fundraising around the 1992 Presidential Campaign of one of his best friends, Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton, and is legendary for standing up to his friend during the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy furor.
