Vernita Gray Council

The Vernita Gray Council is a passionate and dynamic auxiliary board made up of influencers and innovators who want to help further the mission and vision of Howard Brown. Named after Vernita Gray, the Council honors a longtime champion of the rights of LGBTQ people, African Americans, and women who served as a community volunteer, donor, and advocate. Through the council, members grow in their understanding of the health disparities facing the LGBTQ+ community and the resilience of LGBTQ+ people.

As a group, the Vernita Gray Council supports advocacy opportunities, champions and attends agency events, raises funds to support Howard Brown’s mission, and grows awareness of the work of the agency in the community.
