Interfaith Social Justice Awards

JRLC confers two Interfaith Social Justice Awards at its annual Day on the Hill. The Lawrence D. Gibson Interfaith Social Justice Award is given to an individual, and the Interfaith Social Justice Community Award is given to a congregation or organization. In addition, iCAN often recognizes one of its Key Advocates for outstanding children's advocacy work with its Key Advocate of the Year Award.

JRLC's interfaith social justice awards recognize work done in an interfaith context that moves members of a community to effective public action. Nominations for the 2015 awards will begin in late 2014. To nominate an individual or organization or Key Advocate please use this form. Yes, you can nominate yourself or your congregation/organization!
