Giffords Law Center’s 26th Anniversary Dinner, honoring Speaker Nancy Pelosi
In 1993, the Bay Area legal community came together in the aftermath of unthinkable tragedy with a vow to save lives from gun violence. After 26 years of legislative and litigation accomplishments, 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 the past year’s monumental successes, and remember those we’ve lost.
GIFFORDS LAW CENTER’S 26TH ANNIVERSARY DINNER
JUNE 14, 2019

6PM RECEPTION | 7 PM DINNER
2019 Courageous Leadership Award
Speaker Nancy Pelosi
On January 8, 2019—eight years to the day after Congresswoman Gabby Giffords was shot in Tuscon, AZ—Speaker Nancy Pelosi stood next to Gabby and introduced HR 8, a bipartisan federal background checks bill. Weeks later, the bill passed the US House of Representatives in a historic vote. This hard-fought victory is the culmination of decades of leadership by Speaker Pelosi to address the dangerous inadequacies in our federal gun laws. Her persistence in the face of fierce opposition has helped lay a foundation on which we can build legislative progress for years to come. We’re honored to recognize her distinguished leadership.
2019 Odgers Pro Bono Award
Jones Day has been an exemplary partner and asset to our movement for many years, most recently leading efforts to prepare for a Second Amendment fight at the Supreme Court, to keep guns off campuses and out of schools, and to secure funds for violence intervention programs in impacted communities, among other projects.
