Hubert H. Humphrey Civil and Human Rights Award Dinner

Dinner Update Regarding COVID-19


Given the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, The Leadership Conference postponed the Hubert H. Humphrey Civil and Human Rights Award Dinner originally scheduled for May 13, 2020.

We are still planning to celebrate our 70th anniversary with details forthcoming.

We are grateful to our dinner co-chairs, sponsors, and coalition members for their continued support and partnership as we navigate these uncharted waters even while maintaining the mission of The Leadership Conference.

“What we need is the will and determination and imagination to build the kind of an America that you and I know we can have.” — Hubert H. Humphrey

The Leadership Conference’s dinner has always been about more than one evening of community and celebration. It is also an opportunity to renew our collective commitment to safeguard our democracy and advance our values of justice, fairness, and inclusion — no matter the challenges we may face.

Knowing what’s at stake this year, we would be most grateful if you continued your support of The Leadership Conference.
