In 1993, the Bay Area legal community came together in the aftermath of unthinkable tragedy with a vow to save lives from gun violence. Twenty-five years and hundreds of state and local gun laws later, our organization and our movement stand stronger than ever before, with the country on the cusp of lasting, lifesaving change.
Join us on June 14 as we gather to recognize courageous leaders, celebrate progress, and remember those we’ve lost.

2018 COURAGEOUS LEADERSHIP AWARD
Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton
An advocate for gun safety for decades, Secretary Clinton will join the Giffords Law Center community to mark our 25th anniversary and speak about the promising future for the movement to save lives from gun violence. Secretary Clinton’s unwavering calls for stronger gun laws from our country’s most prominent stages have inspired a nation and helped propel the long-overdue reflection and conversation about this deadly epidemic we’re engaged in today. Giffords Law Center is honored to recognize her courage and leadership.
2018 ODGERS PRO BONO AWARD
Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP
Pillsbury has been an invaluable pro bono partner for many years, most recently leading a bold litigation effort to compel the Department of Defense to improve reporting to the background checks system following November’s tragic mass shooting at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas. Named for Richard W. “Dick” Odgers (1936–2014), a beloved founder, supporter, and friend to the Law Center, the Odgers Pro Bono Partner Award recognizes firms like Pillsbury for their outstanding efforts supporting gun lifesaving gun laws and helping build a safer America.
