Join us, along with Senator Cory Booker & journalist Katie Couric, at our 2021 Community Justice Awards Gala where we will honor Wayne Cohen of Sculptor, highlight the progress we have made and hear about how we are moving into a more just future.
Guests will not only hear from Cory Booker and Katie Couric, they will listen and learn through moving stories of our groundbreaking Projects, who each year:
- Help approximately 12,400 households
- Change the lives of over 27,000 people (80%-90% of color)
- Promote innovative young activists in the process
We are thrilled to be able to honor Wayne Cohen of Sculptor Capital Management with our Community Leadership Award. Wayne has been involved and instrumental in identifying social justice initiatives for Sculptor providing both monetary support and actually getting employees to “roll up their sleeves” and get involved.
Your support at this year’s Gala will help showcase your commitment to racial equity, diversity and inclusion. The Gala will provide ways to engage your employees and stakeholders by offering both Watch Party options and a corporate matched-employee based fundraising challenge.
Last year proved we must urgently come together to reconcile the disparities in this country – work the Urban Justice Center has been doing since 1984, by providing essential free legal support to the poor (from survivors of domestic violence, to homeless families, to many more), and mentoring the next generation of leaders in the fight for justice.
