Western New England University School of Law's Center for Social Justice (CSJ) will host the 2022 Run for Justice and Year End Celebration on Saturday, April 30 from 12:00 noon to 4:00 p.m. at the Blake Law Center.

The event starts with a family-friendly fundraiser run/walk to help support the CSJ's work to advance justice. Immediately following the Run will be a celebration with a DJ and food/drink options available for purchase. The Year End Celebration will recognize the many supporters, volunteers, donors, sponsors, and friends that have contributed over the year.

All proceeds from ticket sales will go to the Center for Social Justice to support its work in advancing justice and providing free legal services to those in need. "So get your loved ones and sneakers ready to go," says Center Director Ariel Clemmer. "This year we are raising funds to purchase a Justice Bus which will help bring our services into the community."
