CELEBRATION FOR CHILDREN’S RIGHTS RSVP PAGE

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 24 (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 Calogero Champion of Justice Award to Troi Bechet, Founder & CEO of the Center for Restorative Approaches for her incredible impact on youth justice in New Orleans.

This event will be held at “The Building,” a beautiful gallery and performance space on historic OC Haley Blvd. For the safety of our guests and venue staff, proof of COVID-19 vaccination will be required to attend.

While there is no minimum cost, a donation is required to attend.

Please complete the form below to confirm your attendance.
