The program will feature a buffet, live music and the initiating presentation of three awards focused on people of European descent who have contributed to anti-racist struggles. The award recipients will be present and have the opportunity to address their work.
Each award is going to two or more people, because we think anti-racist struggle is collective and multi-generational struggle. The awards are:
the Adrienne Rich Culture of Resistance and Liberation award, going to Sheila Pinkel, Mary Sutton and Carol Wells of the Center for the Study of Political Graphics (CSPG).
the Sarah & Angelina Grimke Anti-Racist Communicators award, going to Ariana Manov and Leslie Radford (both of whom have been involved with KPFK Pacifica radio in Los Angeles).
the Rose Friedman Working People's Survival award, going to Vanessa Carlisle, Linzy Cristofani and Charlotte Tonnies Moore, who work together doing outreach to and organizing of sex workers.
