Imagine a country where everyone can provide for themselves and their families, where all people have access to quality medical care, where equal work earns equal pay, where everyone has the power to determine their futures—regardless of race or where they come from. This is the future that the Shriver Center on Poverty Law is fighting for.

Join us at the Shriver Center’s 2019 Annual Gala. Sponsorships and tickets available now for this special evening.
