On October 15, you can meet the woman whose true story started it all at NCCD’s Media for a Just Society Awards. Piper Kerman, author of Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison, is a vocal advocate for justice reform. Click here to see her talk with Maria Shriver (and read more about NCCD’s work on this issue here). We are honored to have Ms. Kerman among our guest judges for this year’s awards.

Please join us at the SFJAZZ Center for a memorable evening with Piper Kerman, Sonja Sohn of The Wire, Fruitvale Station’s Ryan Coogler and other luminaries as we celebrate media who are furthering the social justice conversation. We look forward to seeing you there!
