Spotlight on Donors Alissa Case & Heidi Howard

Congratulations to OutFront Minnesota donors Alissa Case and Heidi Howard, new parents of four-month-old Izzy! When the couple was preparing to become parents, they had to spend a lot of money and time to get all of their documents in order (power of attorney, health care directives, custody), things that opposite-sex couples who are married don’t have to do. “It was scary thinking about what could happen to our child because our relationship isn’t recognized by the state of Minnesota," exclaimed Alissa.

She and Heidi are sustaining members of OutFront because “we deserve the same rights as other Minnesotans and OutFront is the only organization in the state – past, present and future – that works for equality holistically for the LGBT community.”

Although they’ve already had a commitment ceremony, they look forward to marriage for same-sex couples becoming legal in Minnesota. “It will send a message that our families matter to this state. And, as our rights are granted, we can focus on other issues that impact the LGBT community and seek justice for all Minnesotans.”

Alissa learned first hand about OutFront eight years ago when she did an internship. She also served on the board of directors. Today, she and Heidi live in South Minneapolis. They love to hang out with their families, go camping up north and spend time at their cabin.

Sustaining members like Alissa and Heidi donate monthly and provide critical, ongoing support for OutFront's programs. Become a sustaining member today for as little at $5 per month.
