The San Francisco Board of Supervisors passed a resolution December 14 designating December 30 as "Jodi Schwartz LYRIC Day" in the city.

Schwartz, a queer woman, is the former executive director of the Lavender Youth Recreation and Information Center, better known as LYRIC, and is now leading the organization's $2.5 million capital campaign to complete a major renovation of its "Purple House" on Collingwood Street in the Castro. "I'm proud of LYRIC," Schwartz said during virtual remarks.

During her tenure, she said, the nonprofit prioritized youth, with the emergence of a new generation of leaders. LYRIC's budget has grown to over $4 million, she noted, and it has a dedicated staff of over 30 people.
