PRESENTING THE VISIONARY AWARD TO IBRAM X. KENDI

On Friday, February 19th, 2021, the Bay Area legal community will gather virtually for LCCRSF’s Martin Luther King Jr. Awards. The annual event and fundraiser spotlights the organization’s work over the previous year to dismantle systems of oppression and racism, and to build an equitable and just society, and celebrates significant contributions of pro bono volunteers, community leaders, artists and activists. The proceeds from this event remain critical to LCCRSF’s ability to conduct our wide range of programs.

Last year, more than 600 people attended, including government, community, and philanthropic leaders. In recent years, Bryan Stevenson, Dr. Monique Morris, Van Jones, Secretary Julián Castro, Rep. Pramila Jayapal and California Attorney General Xavier Becerra have joined our annual event. Each year, we ask the legal community to join us so that the sparks of our work for racial justice can be fanned into the flame of our collective vision of justice, equity and liberation.
