Vision Awards 2018 recipient; Rabbi Irwin and Agnes Herman Humanitarian Award
Elizabeth Savage is social justice activist celebrated by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors for making the City of West Hollywood a “better place to live for its most vulnerable residents.”
In a time when those who serve in government are under attack, it seems fitting to honor a woman whose work has ensured that older adults, people living with HIV/AIDs and those struggling with poverty can access critical services and improve their lives. During her 22 years of service, Elizabeth worked her way up from Financial Analyst to Director of WeHo’s Department of Human Services and Rent Stabilization, where she led the way on critical issues ranging from aging with dignity and protection of affordable housing, to advancement of lesbian and bisexual women’s health and more.
Together with her wife Roxy Bickerstaff, Elizabeth has been a BCC member since 1999.
