On June 15, 2020, Senators Chuck Schumer, Mazie Hirono, and Bob Casey joined organization leaders and activists from over a dozen groups to speak out against anti-health care, anti-civil rights judges like Justin Walker and Cory Wilson.

40th Anniversary New York City Reception

On Wednesday, November 13, 2019, AFJ hosted over 300 members of the legal and advocacy community for a lively and engaging panel featuring Above the Law’s Elie Mystal, MSNBC’s Maya Wiley, and Slate Magazine’s Mark Joseph Stern. It was a fascinating conversation that touched on the impeachment inquiry into Trump, the impact of ultraconservative judges on the federal bench, and the need for progressives to prioritize the courts in 2020.

On June 5, 2019, we celebrated 40 years of AFJ! We recognized Mary Ann Stein, President of the Moriah Fund, for her remarkable career and dedication to justice, and were joined by Senator Mazie Hirono, Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, Cecile Richards, and more!

2018 Champions for Justice Benefit

On December 4, 2018, Alliance for Justice hosted our 2018 Champions for Justice Gala in NYC and were joined by two extraordinary women: Champion of Justice honoree Roberta Kaplan, known for her successful representation of Edie Windsor in United States v. Windsor, which led to marriage equality; and Sally Yates, former Deputy Attorney General who made headlines for refusing to defend Trump’s unconstitutional travel ban. It was a truly inspiring evening, attended by more than 400 members of the legal and advocacy communities, and including remarks from Tony West, Deepak Gupta, Joshua Matz, and Hilary Rosen.
