  1. I would like to nominate Julie Weed for a Cville Pride award. She has been a non-anxious presence, comfortable in her own skin as a teacher, as a mom, and as a presenter for the Safe Space program. Julie and Lynn von Schill brought Safe Space training to our church and helped us understand how we can better live into our identity as a Reconciling in Christ community. Julie is not only a great role model in the LBGT community but in the greater community as well.

    • Aw,you are so sweet! But, I don’t think I’m eligible, as I’m a member of the board. But thank you! This means a lot!

  2. I would like to nominate myself, Miss Christine Weston Chandler, of Ruckersville, VA. I have been a helpful individual to my friends when I can, I am a dedicated artist, creator and author, I caretake my mother, dogs and cats; I’ve pulled a lot of physical weight in this household. And I try to set an example, and inspire other people, from my experiences as a Lesbian Transwoman. Thank you.

  3. I’m nominating you and would like for you to add more: I do not have Sarah’s email and need hers, your parents and anyone else that can attest and add to this so you get this!
    I love you!
    Shannon Wilson Haeffner

    I am nominating Shannon Haeffner because of her continued devotion as a mother, sister, daughter and human to keeping Albemarle County & Charlottesville open, beautiful and tolerate.

    As a “Charlottesville” native, she currently serves our community in many ways.
    A fervent guardian of animals, she serves on the Albemarle County Fair Board. An avid gardener & 4H family, she continues to instill the Farmer’s Voice. An outspoken & gracious advocate for humans & animals, has worked her butt off in horse barns, pushed past the barriers OF HATE to marry her love, Sarah Matthis, and continues to fight for her son, Tucker, despite numerous sabotaging forces. She currently works for Klein Real Estate providing sound homes & safe neighborhoods for our ever growing populace. Her life embodies compassionate activism.

    We need to celebrate champions of peace, hard workers and folks born & bred in our bastion of evolving growth. Shannon, a townie: not a half back nor transplant from an other area, embodies the true values of what are community needs.
