Justice Rising Gala
October 22, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
With the proliferation of war around the world, we cannot simply sit back and watch…
Justice Rising International warmly invites you to our 3rd annual gala. The evening will include speakers, an overview of our programs, and a photo-exploration of the ongoing conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo and other war-torn regions, including Iraq and Syria.
Supporters at the event will have an opportunity to give to the ongoing work of transforming war zones through education.
We invite you to engage with the stories featured in the photo exhibit, and ask for your help in reaching our evening fundraising goal of $50,000.
We believe that education is one of the most powerful tools to not only combat extremist ideology, but to effect lasting change in communities affected by war.
Today, Justice Rising operates seven schools serving over 1,400 students. Over the next five years, we plan to build 40 more to reach nearly 6,000 at-risk kids.
