Co-chairs Jim Theofelis (Founder) and Dr. Benjamin Danielson (iconic leader in health care and anti-racism) welcome you to reconnect with us and celebrate the rich history of Mockingbird’s work and impact over the last two decades.

As we build our vision for Mockingbird's next chapter under the leadership of Natalie A. Lente, Mockingbird’s first executive of color and tenacious leader in racial equity and anti-racism, we are honored to uplift and honor the incredible legacy of Degale Cooper (former Mockingbird director and early developer of MOCKINGBIRD FAMILY™), whose passion for the welfare of young people continues through her work as CEO of YouthCare, a Mockingbird partner organization.

As a part of our effort to reconnect with as many community members as possible, all are welcome and there is no charge required to attend this event. To further support our community advocacy work, our suggested donation is $175. Donations can be made in advance upon registration or in-person at the luncheon.

We would be honored to have the opportunity to RECONNECT with you at our fall luncheon. Your support makes this year of reflecting, rebuilding, and reimagining possible!
