Dr. Darrick Lawson has been a member of the Rainbow Chamber since 2003 and served as Board Member-at-Large for the 2009-2010 term and as co-chair of the Chamber’s new Governmental Affairs Committee. He has been a practicing chiropractor since 1991 and has always had a passion for the greater community. Darrick often donates his services to help others, such as Homeless Connect, Wellspring, CARES, and has a policy not to deny care to anyone regardless of ability or inability to pay. He offers a free examination to all members of the Rainbow Chamber.
Dr. Lawson brings to the Chamber an interesting mix of professional and life experiences. He was the Vice President of the Orangevale Chamber of Commerce, Vice President of the Elmhurst neighborhood association, and President of the Stonewall Democratic Club of Greater Sacramento, which grew to over 500 members while he was president. He is currently a commissioner for the Human Rights / Fair Housing Commission, and Chairs the Board of a new Ecumenical and Inter-Faith Ministry called the Experience which will feature beloved pastor Dr. David Thompson.
Dr. Lawson hopes to help continue the bridge building between the communities of Faith and Politics, to members of the Gay and Lesbian Community. While there are many who have been hurt in the past, Dr. Lawson knows there are avenues to healing that will serve all of us in our quest for greater equality and acceptance.
