Special Events

Our annual gala is a time-honored tradition. Past speakers include Kerry Washington, Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama to name a few.

Your support is needed now more than ever! During this time of unprecedented uncertainty, disruption and change, the National Partnership is working tirelessly to make sure that those living on the economic margins are not forgotten in our nation's coronavirus response. We aren’t going anywhere, and we are in this for the long-haul. We hope we can count on your commitment this year.

We look forward to celebrating again with you in person in June 2021, as we mark the National Partnership’s 50th Anniversary! Stay tuned for details later this year.
