ACLU of Louisiana's 43rd Annual Ben Smith Fête

The ACLU of Louisiana's Ben Smith Fête celebrates the legacy of one of our founders, Ben Smith, who worked to end segregation, promoted voting rights, and fought for the civil liberties of all Louisianans. The gala fuels the ACLU of Louisiana's work to promote justice and fairness across the state, from combating racial injustice and mass incarceration to defending the rights of immigrants and vulnerable communities.

This year's event will recognize the legendary Albert WoodFox, one of the Angola 3 who spent more than four decades in solitary confinement and feature local artist and activist, and ACLU of Louisiana’s Artist Ambassador, Brandan "BMike" Odums.
