Let Kids Play Celebration

Chicago Cultural Center, Chicago, IL

Event Description

Join us for the Family Defense Center’s annual benefit!

This year’s theme is “Let Kids Play,” which is a celebration of the Center’s important work defending families against unfair charges of child neglect, such as a rule that is used to punish parents for making decisions like letting their children play at the park. These vague charges of neglect especially hurt poor families who are trying to provide a good life for their children. We hope that you will join us for this special event as we recognize those who work towards a fairer child welfare system. 

Sponsorships are available on our website.
