Justice in Action 2017 Awards Luncheon
Each year "Justice in Action" brings together legal professionals, law students, and others to raise funds for and awareness about Mazzoni Center’s Legal Services program, which is the only program offering free legal services tailored to address the needs of low-income LGBTQ Pennsylvanians. Our program assists individuals by providing information, advice, and representation that enables them to understand their rights, use the law to protect themselves and their families, and respond to discrimination because of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
This year we are thrilled to be honoring the achievements of Mara Keisling, Founder and Executive Director of the National Center for Transgender Equality. Through her years of activism and distinguished leadership of her groundbreaking advocacy organization, Mara has has made remarkable contributions to advancing equality and social justice for trans and gender non conforming people across the United States.
Now more than ever
In the face of an uncertain political climate, committed and experienced advocates are needed more than ever to advance, and defend, the rights of LGBTQ people in Philadelphia, in Pennsylvania, and across the United States. Please join us in honoring and celebrating Mara, and in supporting the critically important work Mazzoni Center Legal Services continues to do on behalf of our community.
