Nominations are now open for the 2017 Discount Foundation Legacy Award!
The award identifies, supports and celebrates an individual who has demonstrated outstanding leadership and contributed significantly to the workers’ rights movement in the United States and/or globally.
In addition to being publicly recognized for their remarkable contributions to the movement, the 2017 Discount Foundation Legacy Award winner will receive a $20,000 stipend.
The award was launched in 2015 to commemorate and carry on the legacy of the Discount Foundation’s decades-long history of supporting cutting-edge organizing in the worker justice arena beyond its closure in 2014. Jobs With Justice Education Fund is proud to oversee the award program, along with Funders for a Just Economy, a program of the Neighborhood Funders Group.
