Celebration of 52nd anniversary of In re Gault

On May 15, 2019, NJDC will gather to commemorate the 52nd anniversary of the In re Gault decision and celebrate the transformational power of stories; a power that honors the dignity and humanity of every child. Please save the date and join us in Washington, DC for The Story of (In)Justice.

They will again be presenting the Norman Dorsen Award, dedicated to the late professor and civil rights attorney who forever changed the landscape of children’s rights in the United States. This award celebrates those like Mr. Dorsen who work outside of the children’s defense community and yet contribute so much to the fulfillment of equal protections for young people.

Additional information about our awardees, sponsorship opportunities, and tickets will be coming soon. We look forward to seeing you on May 15!
