25th Annual Luncheon


Celebrate our victories, the law firms and advocates who partner with us and a Netflix show that advances our shared vision of liberty and justice for all.

In 1990, five young men were convicted of a crime they did not commit in Central Park. This year, we have the honor of celebrating the fortitude and strength of Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson, Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana and Korey Wise when they accept the ACLU SoCal’s Roger Baldwin Courage Award. Along with them, we will honor When They See Us, the new Netflix series created and directed by Ava DuVernay, which is based on their story.

We're honoring attorneys from Arnold & Porter and Immigrant Defenders Law Center; Davis Wright Tremaine; Kaye McLane Bednarski + Litt; and Sidley Austin twice — once alone and the second time for work done with National Day Laborer Organizing Network (NDLON) and National TPS Alliance, for their pro bono work as co-counsel on ACLU cases. We are awarding the Community Service Award to Kirkland & Ellis

Please join us and hear more about how your support makes our work possible.
