Igniting Change 2018 will be held at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel (Downtown) 181 Peachtree Street Atlanta, GA 30303. This year we will be celebrating the Gideon’s Promise Family successes and motivating stories with a masquerade gala. The attire is cocktail. We encourage you to bring your personalized masks. This will be an evening of glitz, glamour, good times, and great food. Join us as we honor advocates and leaders in criminal justice reform.
The Gideon’s Promise community welcomes your attendance. Our goal is to raise funds on March 16, 2018 for public defenders, so they may receive the necessary training and mentoring to be leaders in civil rights. These dedicated men and women are building a movement that is rewriting the narrative about what justice means in America. We hope you will join us. Enjoy a video about our movement and photos from Igniting Change galas.
