Moran Center’s 40th Anniversary

2021 marks the 40th year of the Moran Center helping young people in their pursuit of justice in the courtroom, access to the classroom, and restoration in the community. Forty years of “doing justice.” Doing justice means STANDING UP. It means SPEAKING TRUTH TO POWER. It is a tireless effort to DISMANTLE systems that criminalize, institutionalize, and exclude youth and families so they are not heard and not valued. For forty years, we have been on the forefront of providing disinvested youth and their families with integrated legal and social work services to improve their quality of life at home, at school, and within the community.

Thank you to our sponsors of the Moran Center’s 40th Anniversary celebration!
