Join us for our annual fundraising events in New York, Los Angeles and Washington, DC!

Annual Update: The Annual Update is our signature annual event held in Los Angeles.  Each year, 250 professionals, students and community leaders come together at UCLA for a 1-2 day conference to discuss the major issues impacting the LGBT community. During the conference, we also host our Gala Reception at the UCLA Law School and Founders Dinner at a private residence. 

Jazz & Champagne Brunch: Our annual brunch is the kickoff event for the Annual Update and is held the Sunday of Martin Luther King weekend at a private home in Los Angeles. Over 200 people join us for this great event that includes live music, great food and a fantastic view of Los Angeles.

Spring & Fall Receptions: The Williams Institute hosts its Fall Reception in New York City and its Spring Reception in Washington, DC. Each event begins with a one-hour educational panel by top scholars and experts on LGBT issues.  The panel is followed by a 200-person cocktail reception and our intimate Founders Dinner for major donors. CLE credit is available for lawyers who attend the educational panel.
