IJ celebrated 10 years of unique public interest litigation, media relations, training and outreach by gathering benefactors, clients and staff on Florida’s Amelia Island November 1-4. The joyous occasion offered all who attended a chance to reflect on IJ’s decade of accomplishments and exciting plans for the future. In the aftermath of September 11, the gathering demonstrated an undaunted resolve against the forces of fear and a resounding affirmation of the principles of freedom.
Throughout the weekend, clients shared their stories of heroism; staff provided thought-provoking commentary on constitutional issues; and donors experienced the full scope of their investments in the Institute. Of course, we found time for some skeet shooting, sailing, golf and tennis.
With the Institute we have built and the benefactors and clients that we have attracted, it’s no wonder we’re excited and confident about making the most of the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead.
