Sponsorship Opportunities

Your contribution to the Gala will have a meaningful impact on our mission of promoting a fair judiciary and advocating for laws and policies that level the playing field for workers. Sponsorships support NELA’s Washington DC Office and advocacy work, including our Amicus, Judicial Nominations, and Legislative & Public Policy Programs. As a sponsor of the Gala, you will play an integral role in building NELA’s influence in our nation’s capital, courtrooms, and everywhere we can make a difference. Please join us in amplifying NELA’s voice.
