Bay Area Lawyers for Individual Freedom held its 40th anniversary gala Friday, March 6, at Bentley Reserve just as San Francisco officials were urging people to avoid large in-person gatherings due to the coronavirus outbreak. But attendees had access to hand wipes and many greeted each other with elbow bumps instead of hand shakes. Above, gay state Senator Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco), left, was on hand to present the Community Service Award to Openhouse, which was accepted by Executive Director Karyn Skultety, Ph.D., right. Other awardees were Oasis Legal Services, which received the Legal Service Award, and UC Davis law student Rachel Schiff, who received the inaugural Julius Turman Award, named for the gay attorney and former San Francisco police commissioner who passed away in 2018.
