14th Annual Spirit of Justice Award Dinner

14th Annual Spirit of Justice Award Dinner

Ticket sales end at 12noon on Monday, October 21st. Our catering count is due that day so that is the *final* RSVP deadline for all guest names. Tickets are *not* available at the door. Send guest list updates to: events@glad.org

In its 14th year, the Spirit of Justice Award Dinner is GLAD’s flagship event attracting over 1,100 attendees from the Greater Boston area and beyond.

The Spirit of Justice Award recognizes individuals whose work and achievements reflect a profound dedication to our ideal of a just society. This year, on the 10th anniversary of the landmark Goodridge decision, Chief Justice Margaret H. Marshall was enthusiastically selected for her life-long commitment to justice – as evidenced by her fight against apartheid, her belief in civil rights for all people, and her dedication to the rule of law. It was an historic decision to rule that gays and lesbians in Massachusetts should be treated as equal citizens. It shifted the national dialogue and re-energized the LGBT equality movement.

Join us for an opportunity to hear about GLAD’s inspiring work in the fight to end discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, HIV status, and gender identity and expression.

Tickets are $225 each

Reception 6:30 PM · Dinner 7:30 PM · Dancing 10 PM
