The Gault at 50 Gala
Join the National Juvenile Defender Center on May 15, 2017, for a commemoration of the 50th anniversary of In re Gault, the Supreme Court decision that affirmed children’s right to counsel in juvenile court. As a community, we will honor the progress our country has made since the landmark 1967 decision and chart the course forward to protect children’s civil and due process rights.
Tickets for the gala cost $175 for general admission and $125 for nonprofit and public defender attendees.
Cocktails: 6 pm
Dinner & Program: 7:15 pm
We’re honored to recognize Robert L. Listenbee, Former Administrator of the United States Department of Justice, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, and Patricia Puritz, Founder and Former Executive Director of the National Juvenile Defender Center, for their steadfast zeal, vision, and persistence in building a dedicated community of juvenile defenders.
We’re also thrilled to welcome the Howard Gospel Choir of Howard University for a special performance.
Thank you for joining us to commemorate this historic occasion!
