As Cultural Leadership’s signature event, the Journey to Justice benefit dinner serves as both a fundraiser and a reunion celebration. Alumni, current students, parents, past and present board members, and new faces meet and share why they advocate for diversity, inclusion, and cultural understanding over dinner and entertainment. The evening begins with a cocktail reception and features our Distinguished Alumni awardees, along with a "Join the Journey" raffle and our live "Fund The Mission" auction.
