YWCA seeks nominees for two justice awards



The YWCA Clark County has extended the nomination period for two awards it will give out in June. They are the Val Joshua Racial Justice Award and the Youth Social Justice Award. The deadline for nominees is now May 30.

The awards are given to people who demonstrate leadership in working to eliminate racism and in promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all people. Recipients are leaders in civil rights and exhibit a commitment to self-determined social change for all people.

People 18 and older are eligible for the Racial Justice Award; people from 14 to 20 are eligible for the Youth Social Justice Award. You may nominate yourself or another by submitting a nomination form. Visit YWCA or call Michelle Hurdle-Bradford, social change program manager, at 360-906-9129.

The YWCA Clark County will honor both award winners during its “Bridging Generations” celebration, set for 5 p.m. June 18 at 3609 Main St. The event is free but please RSVP to events@ywcaclarkcounty.org. It will include speakers, a cultural performance and light hors d’oeuvres.
