The event will take place at 6:00 p.m. (PST) in Sacramento, CA – location to be determined.

The Vanguard is an innovative and cutting edge 501(c)(3) non-profit that trains dozens of court watch interns to monitor and report on court cases in at least eight California counties including San Francisco, Alameda, Sacramento, and Los Angeles.  We are also a criminal justice reform watchdog and news group that reports around the country on critical events and hosts a weekly podcast (Everyday Injustice) featuring leaders in the justice reform movement.  Last year the Vanguard helped place at least 50 interns—most of them women of color—in top law schools across the country.

The Vanguard news coverage focuses on criminal justice reform, wrongful convictions, and police reform.

Proceeds from the event will go toward our operations, including our journalists and the internship program.
