With concerns about COVID-19 continuing to weigh heavily on everyone’s minds, we have decided to cancel this year’s Celebration for Children’s Rights event. The safety of our guests is just too important to jeopardize with a party. We hope to see you next year!
Our lawyers, social workers, and policy advocates work tirelessly in support of our kids all year long. But on this night, we celebrate.
Join us on Thursday, June 18th at our annual benefit event: the Celebration for Children’s Rights, presented by Milbank.
We’ll be recognizing our successes from the past year, when we fought for nearly 500 kids in court, became Louisiana’s primary defender for children facing life without parole sentences, and passed Solan’s Law to ensure fewer children end up needlessly traumatized through incarceration.
We’ll also be presenting our second annual Pascal Calogero Champion of Justice Award to Denese Shervington, MD, MPH, the President & CEO of the Institute of Women & Ethnic Studies, for her years of research and advocacy on behalf of youth justice and well-being.
You’re a part of our children’s success! It’s the support of people like you that helps them thrive and leave the justice system behind for good. So come celebrate with us! Click here to RSVP.
This cocktail reception fundraiser will be held on Thursday, June 18 (6-8pm) at “The Building”, a beautiful art space located at 1427 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd. (just across from the Jazz Market). Catering by Chef Adolfo Garcia of La Boca, High Hat, and Ancora. Business or business casual attire preferred.
While there is no minimum cost, a donation is required to attend.
