The UK Gala will kick off our Celebration of Courage Campaign. This month of virtual events honors the community courage changing children’s lives. It will include a US Gala and a global conversation with young leaders on COVID-19, and it will culminate with the announcement of the 2021 Juliette Gimon Courage Award winners.
