Each year, we celebrate those who follow Eleanor Roosevelt’s powerful example of championing workers’ rights as human rights.

This year, we’ll be honoring:

Paul Booth, for his incredible contributions in advancing collective bargaining and union rights and developing powerhouse organizers in the labor and progressive movements.

The men and women of the American Postal Workers Union, for their successful “Stop Staples” campaign saving good middle-class jobs and the future of the public post office.

In addition, the 2017 Discount Foundation Legacy Award will be presented to:

Luna Ranjit for her accomplished leadership in organizing the Nepali-speaking community to win concrete improvements in their lives, communities, and workplaces.

The evening will also feature the return of our highly-acclaimed silent auction.
