Protecting and advocating for children who have been abused, neglected or abandoned in Los Angeles County has been the core mission of the Children’s Law Center of California (CLC) for the past 25 years.
The nonprofit law firm was created by the Superior Court in 1990. In July 2011 they opened a second branch in Sacramento and now serve as appointed counsel for all abused and neglected children in Los Angeles and Sacramento counties. With a combined staff of more than 275 lawyers, paralegals and investigators, CLC represents close to 33,000 (30,000 in Los Angeles and 3,000 in Sacramento) children.
CLC will celebrate 25 years of serving the community with a fundraiser, “The Art of Advocacy,” from 6-10 p.m. May 7. The celebration, held at the Japanese American National Museum (100 North Central Ave., L.A.), will feature cocktails, a “Treasure Chest” opportunity draw with prizes such as jewelry, event and entertainment tickets, gift cards, memorabilia and electronics. The evening will also feature a live musical performance by singer Brienne Moore and live painting by artist Mike Lanni.
