Norman Lear, the legendary writer and producer known for such sitcoms as “All in the Family,” “One Day at a Time,” and “The Jeffersons,” is also a passionate social and criminal justice advocate who founded the People for the American Way. This lifelong commitment to progressive causes is why he will be presented with the 2019 Award for Social Justice in Action by the Leonard I. Beerman Foundation for Peace and Justice on Sunday, June 2, at the Leo Baeck Temple in Los Angeles.
The event starts at 5:30 p.m. with a cocktail reception, followed by the program at 7 p.m. Amy Poehler will introduce Lear, and Stockton Mayor Michael D. Tubbs will join Lear in conversation.
It will be an evening to remember!
