Join Us

OCTOBER 20, 2021

Join us virtually for a very special event, Boldly Forward: Celebrating Nan Aron and the Future of AFJ.  

This year’s event will pay tribute to Nan, founder and former President of Alliance for Justice (AFJ). She is stepping down from the organization after 42 years of unparalleled determination and visionary leadership.  

This event is a part of our Boldly Forward campaign, which is designed to honor the incredible achievements of AFJ under Nan while ensuring that AFJ’s critical democracy-building work will move boldly forward into the next decade under our new President, Rakim Brooks.   

Please consider becoming an official sponsor today to celebrate Nan and support the next phase of AFJ and the expansion of its flagship Justice and Bolder Advocacy programs.
