Skipping Stone Foundation Trans Community Award
"The Skipping Stone Foundation supports and empowers trans and gender diverse youth and their families by providing low-barrier access to social and community, mental health and medical services.
Our name originates from the idea that positive actions have a profound and far reaching impact like water ripples away from a skipping stone. In recognizing those acts, it is our hope that their example inspires those around them to do the same."
