The Gleitsman Citizen Activist Award

The Gleitsman Citizen Activist Award honors those who have struggled to correct social injustice in the United States (international activists will be the focus of our award in 2013). A total of $125,000 will be awarded in 2012. An honoree, or the honorees, will also receive a specially commissioned sculpture designed by Maya Lin, creator of the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington, DC.

The Gleitsman Program is now accepting nominations for the 2012 Citizen Activist Award. To nominate an individual, please complete the online form or PDF version and submit it to the selection committee along with the requested supplemental material by July 16th. The winner will be announced this fall.

Please note that the award is not presented posthumously, nor is it granted to groups or organizations. Self nominations cannot be considered.
