About the GLIDE Legacy Committee

The GLIDE Legacy Committee inspires the next generation of Bay Area change-makers to engage in the life-altering and life-saving work of GLIDE. GLIDE is a nationally recognized center for social justice dedicated to fighting systemic injustices, creating pathways out of poverty and crisis, and transforming lives. While members of the Legacy Committee have diverse cultural, racial and ethnic, sexual orientation, spiritual, socioeconomic and professional backgrounds, every member of the Legacy Committee brings a shared commitment and passion for social justice and change.
