On September 24, 2015, Courage Campaign Institute will host the Fifth Annual Spirit of Courage Awards at Los Angeles Union Station. It's our biggest night of the year, and we hope you'll join us to honor three exceptional leaders in the fight for a more progressive California and country.
As community activists, civil rights lawyers, and co-founders of the Advancement Project,Molly Munger and Steve English have fought tirelessly for voting rights, racial justice, access to legal services, early childhood education, and a more inclusive democracy, in California and nationwide. Connie Rice, co-founder of the Advancement Project, will present the awards to Molly and Steve.
As Head Coach and General Manager of the LA Galaxy, Bruce Arena has led the team to three MLS championships in the past four years and was recently awarded the U.S. Soccer Federation's highest honor for his selfless work to advance the sport. We will also honor Bruce for his actions as the first coach in U.S. major league men's sports to hire an openly gay athlete, Robbie Rogers, in 2013. Robbie will present the award to Bruce.
