Each year, we celebrate those who follow Eleanor Roosevelt’s powerful example of championing workers’ rights as human rights.
This year, we will be honoring:
Our very own Sarita Gupta, who will receive a distinguished legacy award for her 20-plus years of dedication and unwavering commitment to the Jobs With Justice network and labor movement.
Geoffrey Owens, a well-known actor and educator, for sparking a critical national conversation around the dignity of work and what it means to be a working person in an industry often popularized by wealth and glamour.
Association of Flight Attendants-CWA President Sara Nelson for her leadership and strong stand calling for the labor movement to support a general strike to end the government shutdown.
2019 Discount Foundation Legacy Awardee Odessa Kelly, for her inspiring and unwavering dedication to the social and economic justice movements, through her remarkable leadership in organizing the working people of Nashville to win concrete improvements in their lives, communities, and workplaces.
The evening will also feature the return of our highly-acclaimed silent auction.
