Discovering Justice Annual Gala
Join us at Discovering Justice’s in-person June Gala “Connections and Community”. The Gala supports our work with students and communities to examine the workings of the justice system, explore the ideals of justice, and prepare them to engage in our democracy.
Help us honor our 2022 Champion of Justice, the New England Innocence Project and recognize our partners and volunteers that make our work possible. We look forward to reconnecting, making new connections, and celebrating our ever-growing community!
Become a Sponsor
Each year, the Discovering Justice Gala raises more than $500,000, which provides thousands of students across Massachusetts with access to enriching civics programs that emphasize critical thinking, compassion, and self-discernment, to encourage students to be bold leaders and agents for change in their communities.
The success of our gala each year wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of our sponsors. We are offering a number of sponsorship packages with varying benefits. If you’re interested in showcasing your organization at the next Discovering Justice Gala, please contact Ann Gogol.
Honoring Our 2022 Champion of Justice Award Winner
New England Innocence Project
The New England Innocence Project (NEIP) is an independent social justice non-profit that works to correct and prevent wrongful convictions and fights injustice within the criminal legal system for innocent people imprisoned for a crime they did not commit in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.
Our team provides free forensic testing, investigation, experts, and an experienced legal team to exonerate the innocent and bring them home to their loved ones. We provide exoneree support as they work to rebuild their lives in freedom through the peer-led Exoneree Network. We also use our expertise about wrongful convictions to provide education and advocate for legislative and judicial reforms to prevent future tragedies.
Past Champions of Justice
The Discovering Justice Champion of Justice Award is presented each year to a leader who exemplifies the values we seek to instill in our students and serves as a role model for the next generation of civic leaders. Celebrated at our annual Discovering Justice Gala, past honorees have included Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley, Conan Harris, Dr. Joshua Boger, and Attorney General Maura Healey.
