Grassroots Glam for Rashawn Brazell

Since 2005, the Rashawn Brazell Memorial Scholarship has paid tribute to the slain teen's legacy of academic excellence and selfless service by offering a $1500 award to college-bound New York City students committed to the fight against racism, sexism, homophobia and other forms of injustice.

As we celebrate our 5th anniversary, we'd like to ask for your support of our annual Brighter Days celebration, an awards banquet to be he...ld on August 19, 2010. Hosted at 320 Studios in Manhattan, this year’s event will be our biggest yet. Our 2010 theme is Grassroots Glam and we’re elated to have the Honorable Christine C. Quinn, Speaker of the New York City Council, serving as the event chair.

At the event, we will honor NY State Senator Eric Adams, Reverend Kevin E Taylor and internet radio show host DJ Baker for their unwavering support of our organization and their respective efforts to end violence against LGBT people of color in our community.

The ticket price for the event is $50, which includes a buffet style dinner. However, because the economy has impacted the ability for many of us to give, we are offering a limited number of tickets on a sliding scale. Purchase your tickets at

Also, if you haven’t already done so, we also encourage you to check out for the latest updates on the ongoing murder investigation and our year-round programming efforts. Thank you in advance for your support. We look forward to seeing you on August 19, 2010.
