GOSO Virtual Gala 2021: We Are DIGNITY

On Wednesday, October 27th, Getting Out and Staying Out (GOSO) held an  inspiring event that recognized the transformational work and generosity of leaders working to end the cycle of incarceration. This was our first ever hybrid event, and whether in person or streaming live, our friends and family came together to support GOSO’s commitment to better young men’s lives and helped us to successfully raise over $900,000.
