The Clooney Foundation for Justice's 2023 Albie Awards was not just a celebration of remarkable achievements but also a dazzling display of style and sophistication.
Hosted by George Clooney and Amal Clooney (aka the world’s most charismatic power couple), the event attracted a star-studded guest list, with the glitz and glamour of Hollywood descending upon the New York Public Library in a breathtaking display.
What is the Clooney Foundation for Justice?
In a joint statement on their website the couple explain, “We founded the Clooney Foundation for Justice because we believe in a world where human rights are protected and no one is above the law.” The CFJ continues to work on issues that have long faded from the headlines, and look to support survivors of war crimes. The foundation is actively investigating war crimes in Ukraine, monitoring sham trials targeting women and journalists and fighting against a global trend of authoritarianism that seeks to punish those who speak truth to power.
