Social Justice Leadership In Central Ohio!
Social Justice Awards Luncheon Friday, March 15th, 2019 11:00am to 1:00pm The Boat House at Confluence Park 679 West Spring Street Columbus, Ohio
Columbus made national history recently when the very first Social Justice Park was dedicated and opened up at the corner of Broad Street and Cleveland Avenue. The history of the park was the vision of First Congregational Church, who has been fighting for equal rights in Columbus since 1852.
It is fitting that we as a community come together and celebrate those whose work and leadership in community service, public service, education, law enforcement, restorative justice, and legal advocacy to demonstrate their commitment to Justice for All.
To empower and enlighten all minds to the success and achievements of Central Ohio’s Social Justice Leadership.
Our Annual Central Ohio Social Justice Awards will celebrate and honor extraordinary Social Justice Leaders who have contributed to their careers, communities and professions.
The public and those engaged in the field will be able to nominate those outstanding professionals and leaders in the social justice movement though our online nomination form.
