Thank you for joining us at Lighting the Way on Thursday, April 19! Our annual fundraiser breakfast brought together hundreds of supporters, advocates, elected officials, and Osborne staff and participants to reflect on the current state of our work and lay the foundation for future success.

We're glad you could be with us to hear Suzette, Andrea, and Tristan share their experiences; to see T Haywood awarded the inaugural Frederik R-L. Osborne Award, and to hear special guest Wes Moore share his personal story of second chances and the importance of systemic change.  

You can view the Lighting the Way photo gallery here.
