On May 23rd, 2019, LACLJ celebrated our 46th Anniversary with our annual Awards Gala at The L.A. Hotel in downtown. The night was a celebration honoring our 2019 Pro Bono Partner of the Year, Akin Gump, and our 2019 Justice Award honoree, Laura A. Wasser, Principal at Wasser, Cooperman & Mandles, PC and founder and Chief Executive Officer of the online divorce platform ItsOverEasy.com and host of the Divorce Sucks! podcast. Special thank you to our two client speakers who courageously shared their stories of survival and strength with a packed ballroom of over 500 attendees.
Thank you to our committees, sponsors and donors who helped us exceed our fundraising goals and raise $523,497! Because of you, low-income survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault will have a team of attorneys, social workers, and advocates by their side working to keep them safe and secure justice.
