20th Celebration Sponsors & Commemorative Ad Opportunities
Since 1996, more than 75,000 individuals have taken steps to promote acceptance, celebrate diversity, and empower others. We have witnessed the commitment and passion of people who desire to live in a vibrant, multi-ethnic community – people who desire to shake the world. On June 16, 2016, we will celebrate many of these individuals, and we invite you to partner with us as a sponsor of this event or by purchasing a commemorative ad in the evening's booklet.
