Appleseed and New York Appleseed Pillars of Justice, May 24, 2018

Cocktail reception and awards honoring Susan Haller of the Sprint Corporation

Our annual reception has two goals: to generate critically needed funds to support the work of New York Appleseed and the Appleseed network, and to recognize and celebrate our partners and friends who have stood with us in our efforts to promote justice and access to opportunity for all New Yorkers. The success of the evening depends on your support and the dedicated work of our event host committee members.
