Thank you to everyone who helped our benefit raise nearly $1 million for the Legal Action Center’s important work. Because this benefit costs under $90,000 to produce, each dollar donated will go far towards our mission to fight discrimination against people with histories of addiction, HIV/AIDS, or criminal records. We’re so grateful to all the supporters who made this possible.

The Arthur Liman Public Interest Awards were established in 1998 to honor the memory of Arthur L. Liman, LAC’s co-founder and Board Chair of 25 years. Click here to learn more about this annual event.
