On Thursday, February 10th, 2022, the Bay Area legal community will gather for LCCRSF’s Martin Luther King Jr. Awards. Join us as we gather virtually and work together to transform our racial justice work into a lasting collective vision of justice, equity and liberation. 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. 

Due to the surge of COVID-19 Omicron variant, this event will now be held completely virtually. While we had hoped to meet in person this year, we feel that this is the safest and most responsible decision we can make and is in keeping with current guidance to avoid large indoor gatherings. We look forward to being in community with you virtually!
