Gleitsman Foundation Invites Nominations for 2008 Citizen Activist Award

Deadline: November 2, 2007

The Gleitsman Foundation (<a href=""></a>) encourages individual commitment and leadership by recognizing the exceptional achievement of those who have initiated positive social change. The foundation seeks to honor those individuals whose vision and courage inspire others to join with them in confronting and challenging injustice.

The 2008 Citizen Activist Award will honor those who have struggled to correct social injustice in the United States (international activists are the focus of the foundation’s award in alternate years). The honorees will share $100,000 and will each receive a specially commissioned sculpture designed by Maya Lin, creator of the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington, D.C. The award is not presented posthumously, nor is it granted to groups or organizations.

See the foundation’s Web site for complete award information, a list of past recipients, and a nomination form.
