A Celebration of Social Justice Visionaries

2020 Upton Sinclair Awards

The Fight for Justice Continues


The Fight for Justice Continues

Liberty Hill is proud to announce the honorees for our 2020 Upton Sinclair Awards Dinner—a night when we celebrate Los Angeles' commitment to social justice by recognizing the inspiring community leaders and donor-activists who make change possible.

This year, all four of our honorees are dynamic leaders and organizers who have helped pave the way for progress in Los Angeles and beyond. They truly demonstrate the spirit of our gala theme–Radical Democracy, Radical Change. Their collective contributions have paved the way for radical progress and made radical change possible for millions of Americans. We are honored to celebrate their work and accomplishments.

In the spirit of their organizing work, we ask that you consider sponsoring a ticket or table at our event to host local organizers and activists who are positively impacting the lives of Angelenos every day.

On behalf of Liberty Hill and our family of grantees and donor-activists, we thank you for your support. Your contributions make it possible for us to power the progressive victories that make our region a better place.
