Justice For All Gala 2017 Video & Highlights

Thank you to everyone who came to our Justice For All Gala last week, helping us to exceed our goal. Because of your generosity, we raised a total of $151,147 to continue serving more of our low-income neighbors!

Mayor Joe Hogsett spoke during the cocktail hour, saying, "For all throughout our community, there remain gaps we must seek to bridge and eliminate. But, fortunately, Indianapolis is also home to many individuals like all of you, who are working to make each day better for each and every one of their neighbors. Thanks to the compassion of the Neighborhood Christian Legal Clinic, I can say with some degree of confidence that Indianapolis' best days--our very best days--are yet to come."

Thank you to everyone who refuses to play it safe by supporting justice in our community. Your prayers, donations, and volunteer efforts allow us to help clients like Opiew Ojulu and his family. Here is their story:
