While we are not together this year, we can all join together in spirit to work together toward Dr. Vivek Murthy’s goal of tipping the scale toward love. 

Dr. Murthy’s powerful speech from our 2016 gala, in which he noted that “the world is locked in a struggle between love and fear” and asked us all to help tip the scale towards love, can be viewed below.

Stay tuned for our 30th Anniversary Celebration, which will include events throughout 2018.

All Un-Gala supporters will be listed at the appropriate level on a special supporters page through the end of the year. Each option includes an example of what a gift at that level could support.
