Changing the Odds Dinner recap

This year marked the 8th annual Changing the Odds dinner. The event was held at the Omni Dallas Hotel and featured Bryan Stevenson who is most known for his work as an author, human rights lawyer and inspiring founder and Executive Director of the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI). The evening celebrated amazing donors and partners who have faithfully supported the community and the work of Momentous Institute and Salesmanship Club of Dallas. The room buzzed with energy and anticipation as Mr. Stevenson called guests to ponder the true meaning of justice. Specifically, how “we’ll be not ultimately judged by what we do for the powerful and the rich…but by what we do for the poor, the neglected and the abused.”
