Dear Friends,
An astounding 850 guests attended our Gala on April 4th, creating an energy that buzzed from the Fairmont Century Plaza’s reception area where they first arrived for cocktails, to the ballroom, where the dinner and program took place. We are so proud to have honored longtime Board member and immediate past Board Chair David J. Schindler, Esq. with Bet Tzedek’s Luis Lainer Founder’s Award, Chief Justice of the State of California (ret.) Tani Cantil-Sakauye with the 2023 Rose L. Schiff Commitment to Justice Award, and Bet Tzedek Elder Justice attorney Dominique Sanz-David, Esq. with the Jack H. Skirball Community Justice Award.
You can watch a recording of the Gala to witness the energy here. You can also view and download all the photos of the event here

Together, we raised $2.48M, funds which will ensure that our attorneys and advocates can continue providing free comprehensive legal services, education, and policy advocacy on behalf of thousands of low-income individuals and families across Los Angeles County.

We are SO close to hitting an all-time record of $2.5M. Help us cross that finish line by donating to support our various programs, from protecting clients facing evictions to assisting vulnerable seniors and supporting our conservatorship clinics.

Thanks to everyone who supported us and joined us on April 4th, in person or virtually!
