As we celebrate our 60th year as an affiliate of the American Civil Liberties Union, we reflect back on our work, and all our partners along the way. Our ongoing efforts today to promote criminal legal reform, expanded voting rights, housing justice, education equity, and more, honor our organization’s six decade history as a vanguard of civil liberties in the First State.
Please join us to celebrate that history, and the history to come, at our virtual Kandler Awards Celebration on Wednesday, October 20 at 7 p.m. via Zoom — this year with in-person celebration options, too!
Guests of the 2021 Kandler Awards Celebration will have access to our online silent auction and a private Zoom event that will feature live music, opportunities to learn more about and engage with our work, and a party package — delivered right to your door — with vouchers for celebratory treats from your favorite local restaurants.
A limited number of ticket holders (first come, first-served) will have the option to reserve space at one of our partner restaurants for an in-person gathering, where you can celebrate with your friends during the virtual event while you enjoy food, on us!
This event will be VIRTUAL and will require access to the internet by phone, computer, or tablet to attend. You will receive the Zoom link to the event, when you purchase your ticket.
*Please plan on ordering your tickets by Friday, October 1 in order to guarantee delivery of your party package in time for our event. We cannot guarantee on-time delivery for tickets ordered after October 1.
