2017 Upton Sinclair Awards Dinner

2017 Upton Sinclair Awards Dinner

What does a roomful of 700 of the most engaged, visionary and influential people in L.A. supporting the critical work of building a just society look like? Why the Liberty Hill 2017 Upton Sinclair Awards Dinner of course. Angelenos converged at the Beverly Hilton Hotel and were inspired by the night's presenters and honorees to become donor-activists supporting the most powerful grassroots organizing happening in L.A. Relive those moments now through our Facebook photo albums and YouTube videos of highlights throughout the night.
