7th Annual Anniversary GALA

Updated: Sep 23, 2022

On April 28th 2022 we celebrated Immdef's SEVEN years of fearlessly stepping toward immigrant justice! It was a beautiful evening honoring our partners who helped defend immigrants caught in an unjust system. Guests enjoyed music from DJ Sizzle and Mariachi Arcoiris de Los Angeles and food from Charolitas Con Amor y Queso and Jackfruit Cafe! We were honored to be graced with the presence of Dolores Huerta and chant along with her, si se puede!

ImmDef’s anniversary was also a chance to recognize partners who devoted their energy and efforts to help them ensure that no immigrant stands alone:

Community Partner Award: Justice Action Center

Pro Bono Partner Award: Simpson Thacher Bartlett LLP

Champions of Social Justice: Unified U.S. Deported Veterans Resource Center

Volunteer of the Year Award: Peggy Thompson

Compassionate Leader Award: Supervisor Hilda Solis
