NY Lions never shy away from the tough topics. This year, we’ve invited thought leaders and changemakers to our stage to focus on some of the critical issues of our time, including reproductive justice and gun violence prevention.

We will also honor four extraordinary women. Truly the best of the best, each has contributed time, energy, and love to our community.
