We are taking our Gala online!
Please join us as we celebrate ACLU SoCal’s year’s worth of successes and our plans for the work ahead.
This Virtual Gala will be an entertaining 50 minute mix of performances, celebrity guest appearances, and surprises.
We will be announcing our participants soon – and updating this page – so check back.
Sponsor packages are available now. Individual tickets will be available at a later date.
Your support directly funds our work on racial justice, voting, women’s rights and reproductive freedom, LGBTQ+ issues, immigration, education, privacy and so much more across our region, across our state, and across our country.
