On November 7, 2017 we held our annual Healing & Hope celebration in Washington, DC. The event featured an awards ceremony honoring champions of our cause, advocates and supporters, while benefiting the Campaign for the Fair Sentencing of Youth.
Throughout the evening we had the opportunity to celebrate our successes and re-energize ourselves for the work still ahead in ending life without parole sentences for children.
With dozens of ICAN members in the room, we challenged our guests to raise an additional $25,000 to facilitate our hiring another ICAN member to our team in 2018. We are thrilled to report that the crowd met our challenge! We are grateful for the support and look forward to deploying these additional funds next year.
Healing & Hope is our opportunity to recognize the hard work and commitment that takes place year round. We could not do this work without you and your support.
