Will the event be held in person?

Yes! We’re looking forward to being together in person again and are making informed decisions regarding safety at the 2023 Spirit of Justice Award Dinner based on state mandates and guidance from the CDC. If we need to make any changes to our in-person plans, we will communicate directly with guests.

While there will not be a live virtual component to the event this year, highlights from the speaking program will be available on glad.org after the event.

Will masks be required?

While not required, masks will be available at check-in. We kindly request that individuals feeling unwell refrain from attending the event and consider staying home until they have recovered.


Check-in and registration is on the second floor. Join us there to check in and receive your name tag and table number. You do NOT need paper tickets. If you need to change the names of any guests, you can do that in person when checking in. Coat check is also available on the second floor.

Bars & Beverages

All bars at the event are cash only. There is an ATM on the first floor for your convenience. Soft drinks are complimentary.

Parking & Transportation

Validated garage parking is available at the hotel for $62. There is also a self-parking option across the street at the Motor Mart Garage. You can reserve a parking spot online beforehand on their website.
The venue is also accessible by the Green Line, Red Line, and bus.   

We hope you will join us on Thursday, November 9.
