ADL VOICES: A Show of Unity will be headlined by “The Daily Show” host and stand-up comedian Trevor Noah.
Using the power of comedy, song, dance, video and storytelling to inspire and unify, VOICES is a fundraising benefit and community gathering designed to bring people together, foster dialogue and build mutual respect.
At the event, the Irwin J. Hausman Civil Rights Award sponsored by Murtha Cullina LLP will be presented to ACLU Director of Immigration Policy and Campaigns Lorella Praeli. Praeli came to the United States from Perú as a child and spent almost 13 years as an undocumented immigrant. With the help of ADL’s Connecticut office, Praeli found her voice as a young teenager to stand up to bullies and become one of the top immigration advocates in the nation.
This event is in lieu of the annual ADL Great Hartford Torch of Liberty dinner. To learn more about this event, make a financial gift or become a sponsor please visit: www.adlvoices.org.
