Past GALA Highlights

Opal Tometi accepts the 2016 Frederick Douglass Award on behalf of Black Alliance for Just Immigration (BAJI). BAJI is national organization that was formed to educate and engage African American and Black immigrant communities to organize and advocate for racial, social, and economic justice.

Julissa Reynoso accepts the North Star Award, presented by New York State Attorney General Schneiderman, at the 2015 Community Gala. Raised in the Bronx and a former North Star Fund board member, Julissa has been pushing for equality and justice at home and abroad for more than two decades.

I attended my first Community Gala in 2014 and was amazed by the collection of people in the room. It was so inspiring to see how the Community Gala brought together organizers on the ground and donor activists, all of whom are working to create a more inclusive New York City.
— Lisa Steglich, North Star Fund board member
