“Honoring Outstanding Social Justice Leadership”

2019 Social Justice Awards Luncheon

Friday, March 15th, 2019 | 11am – 1pm

The Boat House at Confluence Park

679 West Spring Street

Our Mission: To empower and enlighten all minds to the success and achievements of Central Ohio’s Social Justice Leadership.

Columbus made national history recently when the very first Social Justice Park was dedicated and opened up at the corner of Broad Street and Cleveland Avenue. The history of the park was the vision of First Congregational Church which can trace its history for fighting for equal rights in Columbus all the way back to its beginnings in 1852.

So it is fitting that we as a community come together and celebrate those whose work and leadership in community service, public service, education, law enforcement, restorative justice, and legal advocacy know that we appreciate their commitment to Justice for All.
