Nothing is more inspiring than a community joining together to celebrate a common cause. Every blow struck for justice resonates throughout our community and improves the lives of others in countless ways. Join us as we recognize those in our community who demonstrate an exceptional devotion to justice.

This year, we will be lifting up three remarkable honorees: the recipient of the Ronald M. George Equal Justice Award, and two recipients of the Special Recognition Award. Past honorees are the faces of the fight for equal justice, and remind us of how much effort is required to make legal advocacy accessible to all.

The Ronald M. George Equal Justice Award was named for then Chief Justice George of the California Supreme Court who served from 1996 to 2011. The Chief Justice was the first recipient; this is the highest award given by CCLS to honor an individual, organization or project that exemplifies Justice George’s commitment to a fair and accessible system of justice. The Special Recognition Award is for individuals or organizations who bring their heart and soul to the pursuit of “justice for all.”
