Neighborhood Legal Services Program is excited to celebrate our friends and supporters at our annual event Jazz for Justice.
This year will feature the presentation of the Leader of Justice Award.

The Leader of Justice Award recognizes an outstanding individual who has served the civil and social justice communities as a leader, volunteer, and innovator and must also have a track record of providing support and resources to those in the community suffering discrimination and injustice.
