Igniting Change 2024: Dawn of a New Day will salute co-founders Jonathan Rapping and Ilham “Illy” Askia as they pass the baton to Gideon’s Promise’s new Executive Director, Zanele Ngubeni. We will recognize the contributions of distinguished individuals who have contributed to criminal and social justice transformation in Georgia. Ed and Judy Garland, from Atlanta, will receive the John R. Lewis Lifetime Achievement Award, while Mawuli Davis and Jana Johnson-Davis, also from Atlanta, will be honored with the Community Impact Award.
Our mission is to transform the criminal justice system by building a movement of public defenders who provide equal justice for marginalized communities. Proceeds from this event fund our programming, mentorship, and support services for our public defenders at every level of their careers.
