CCSJ Receives Democracy in Action Award
The League of Women Voters continued their tradition of Democracy in Action
Awards on May 13, 2015 by presenting awards to The Community Coalition for
Social Justice, Mr. John Sonnenday of the Coordinating Council on Homelessness,
and League member Lyndell Millechia.
The CCSJ received the award for sponsoring such events such as forums on fair
housing and religious diversity and providing a wide range of books on social justice
themes to local libraries. Their most visible activity is the annual program to honor
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The event educates us about where we have been and
where we are going as a country and as a community in terms of civil rights. The
CCSJ was represented by Al Anderson, Susan Brown, Nora Sheets and Barb Howe,
and the award was accepted by Al Anderson on their behalf.
