For 50 years now, the Sargent Shriver National Center on Poverty Law has been working to reduce poverty in America. Our goal is to make justice, equity, and opportunity work for everyone. It’s a big goal, and it’s work that never ends.

As we face threats to important policies at the federal level -- we must look at the real and imminent impact on workers, families, and communities across the country. The choices that states make will have monumental consequences on the ability of their residents to grow and learn, work, care for loved ones, and live in dignity.

Join our advocacy community in Chicago on December 1, 2017, for a day-long gathering to explore what we need to secure justice, every day for everyone in the next 50 years to come.

Registration opening soon.

Sargent Shriver famously and frequently posed two questions to everyone from his closest friends to his newest acquaintance: "What have you done today to make this a better world? What will you do tomorrow?"

In celebration of our 50th year, the Shriver Center hopes to spark broadened conversation about poverty and inequality through Justice Dinners to be held across the country.


Connect. Engage. Act.

Justice Dinners are an opportunity for Shriver Center ambassadors, friends, and supporters to gather for intimate and engaging conversations on poverty, racial justice, and policy solutions that can be implemented at the federal, state, and local level.

Hosted by Shriver Center supporters, the 50 Justice Dinners to be held across the country in 2017 will generate ideas, expand networks, and enlist allies for justice and opportunity.
