I'm proud to serve on the board of the Empowering Spirits Foundation. What great work ESF does, to promote equality in such a non-divisive manner. And Latham is a true leader with a great vision. Keep up the great work!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

that originally I was a volunteer, and in 2009 was asked to serve on the board. I appreciate that the board is full of members from all walks of life, and from all over the country. I've also volunteered at various service events.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

change nothing.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing the changed attitudes of those typically against LGBT rights.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

kind, skilled, friendly.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

truly change the world for the better.

Ways to make it better...

they had more money and could reach a larger audience. No other complaints though.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...


One thing I'd also say is that...

Latham is a truly remarkable young man, a visionary and kind-hearted soul.
