A Gala For a Just World For Women and Girls

December 3rd, 2020 5:30pm PST / 8:30pm EST

Each year, the gala raises money to support our team of human rights lawyers who protect and promote the rights of women and girls around the world. This year, it is especially crucial as we see the pandemic put both the rights of women and girls, and our funding at risk.

Join us, and together we can create unshakeable, enduring equality for women and girls everywhere.
