“You may be 38 years old as I happen to be, and one day some great opportunity stands before you and calls upon you to stand up for some great principle, some great issue, some great cause--and you refuse to do it because you are afraid; you refuse to do it because you want to live longer; you\'re afraid that you will lose your job, or you\'re afraid that you will be criticized or that you will lose your popularity or you\'re afraid that somebody will stab you or shoot at you or bomb your house, and so you refuse to take the stand. Well you may go on and live until you are 90, but you\'re just as dead at 38 as you would be at 90! And the cessation of breathing in your life is but the belated announcement of an earlier death of the spirit. You died when you refused to stand up for right, you died when you refused to stand up for truth, you died when you refused to stand up for justice.”

— Martin Luther King, Jr. 

Annual Dinner

Each year, NYSACDL hosts its Annual Dinner and Awards Ceremony in Manhattan.  The dinner is held in January to coincide with the New York State Bar Association’s Bar Week.  Traditionally, NYSACDL installs its new president for the year at the dinner and bestows honors and awards upon jurists and practitioners who have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to further the goals of criminal justice.

 

The Dinner Journal, published every year and given to attendees, provides an excellent archive of the NYSACDL board, contributors to our initiatives, and recognizes our honorees.
