The Louisiana Center for Children’s Rights protects the rights of children in the juvenile legal system. We defend them in courtrooms, support them in schools, and provide them with the resources they need to grow up healthy and leave the system behind for good.

Join us on Thursday, March 21 (6-8pm) for this cocktail reception as we celebrate our successes and come together to make Louisiana a better place for all children.

We will also be presenting our annual Calogero Champion of Justice Award to Ubuntu Village for its incredible work helping families advocate for themselves in New Orleans’ juvenile legal system.

This cocktail reception fundraiser will be held on Thursday, March 21 (6-8pm) at The Building, a beautiful art space located at 1427 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd. (just across from the Jazz Market). Business or business casual attire preferred.

While there is no ticket cost, a donation of any amount is required to attend. Donate now via LCCR’s donation page, Paypal, or Venmo.
