2021 Children’s Rights Benefit

Event Details

Please join us on Monday, October 25th, 2021, for our Children’s Rights Fall Benefit in New York City at the Mandarin Oriental.

Our Impact

Proceeds from the benefit will help us combat violations of children’s human rights in state care across the U.S and hold governments accountable for keeping kids safe and healthy, free from abuse and neglect while in foster care, immigration, and juvenile justice settings.

Honoree Information

In addition to lifting up the critical work of Children’s Rights and raising much-needed funding to ensure the health and safety of vulnerable children, we will honor leaders who have helped Children’s Rights thrive during a most challenging time including Megan Shattuck, Teneo’s Head of Strategy, U.S. Talent Advisory and Children’s Rights Board Chair 2016 – 2021.

Health and Safety 

While we’re excited for a long awaited celebration together, safety is our highest priority. Precautions will be taken and shared with all guests in advance of the benefit. In the meantime, we are moving forward with our in-person event, and if needed it will become a virtual benefit. We hope that you will join us.
