2018 Upton Sinclair Awards Dinner

Los Angeles' progressive leaders come together for a night of celebration at Liberty Hill's annual gala, hosted at The Beverly Hilton. For over 40 years, the evening has been a convening of the region's changemakers—from the activists fighting on the ground to the donor-activists who help to make community organizing possible.
