Brennan Legacy Awards

Our annual celebration of the fight for democracy and justice – gone virtual.

Red Star

October 20, 2020
6:30pm Reception • 7pm Program

We hope you will join us for this special evening to support the Brennan Center for Justice. We have transformed our 2020 event into a virtual experience so that we can bring together our community of supporters at a critical moment ahead of the elections.

This year – our 25th anniversary in the fight for democracy and equality – we look forward to sharing the story of our efforts to protect the vote and to ensure America finally delivers on its promise of justice for all. As usual, we will also recognize and celebrate the contributions of fellow leaders of this diverse and dynamic movement.

Updated details about the event, including confirmed participants and sponsors, will be posted here in the coming weeks. For information about sponsorship packages and tickets, click the link below. Please contact Margi Briggs-Lofton at or 646.505.5175 with any questions.
