Galaxy coach Bruce Arena was recognized with a Spirit of Courage award Thursday in downtown Los Angeles.

The award is given to Californians who exemplify courage in the fight for a more fair and just society.

Here’s more from the press release:

When Bruce hired Robbie Rogers in 2013, he became the first coach in any major league U.S. men’s sport to hire an openly gay athlete. LA Galaxy mid-fielder Robbie Rogers will speak and present the award. Before winning an MLS Championship with the Galaxy, Robbie represented the U.S. in the 2008 Olympics. In 2013, he launched “Beyond It,” an anti-discrimination campaign. His biography, Coming Out to Play, was published last November.
