HRC Governor Jennifer Foster will receive the Metropolitan Business Association's 2010 Debbie Simmons Community Service Award. The Debbie Simmons Community Service Award is given each year to "an individual who has demonstrated integrity and leadership in their business endeavors while supporting and promoting the fight for LGBT equality." In addition to being a founding member of HRC's Orlando Steering Committee, Jennifer has been a tireless advocate for LGBT rights in Orlando through her organizing efforts fighting against anti-marriage opponents in the state and her support for fair minded local, state and federal candidates. Jennifer's spirit, energy, sense of humor, and smile have opened minds and hearts in Orlando and beyond. The HRC family is so proud of Jennifer for this well-deserved recognition.
