Please join us for this festive and inspirational evening to advance equality and justice in the American workplace. NELA’s 2019 Gala Fundraiser will take place on Friday evening after dinner (on your own) and will include dessert, dancing, and live music.
Jazzed For Justice celebrates the heart and soul of NELA—our inspiring members. NELA will honor two individual members for their distinguished service to the NELA community.
Brian East (TX) will be recognized for his extraordinary contributions on the national level. His unparalleled participation on the NELA Exchange and his willingness to provide advice and assistance to other NELA members epitomizes one of NELA’s core values––NELA lawyers freely supporting one another in the fight for justice for workers.
NELA also will recognize Mariko Yoshihara (CA) for the significant impact she has had at the state level. As Legislative Counsel & Policy Director and Legislative Counsel for the California Employment Lawyers Association, she leads and organizes legislative efforts to advance workers’ rights in California, a model for the country. Mariko has helped to pass a number of key workers’ rights measures in the state, while participating in NELA’s lobbying efforts and supporting those of other NELA Affiliates.
