Nominations are being sought to determine the next recipient of the ESPC Award of Merit for Advocacy and Social Justice.

The council is seeking forward-looking and courageous individuals and groups who have not turned away from controversy in an effort to seek social justice. The efforts of the individual or group should have had a clear impact on the community and be either ongoing or for a considerable period of time.

“We recognize that many individuals and groups in our community work tirelessly to advocate for programs that parallel the social vision of the Edmonton Social Planning Council,” said board member Rose Marie Tremblay. “From time to time, we provide an award of merit to an individual or group whom we believe has provided a long-term record of dedication and achievement in the pursuit of social policies of benefit to Edmontonians.”

A nominating committee made up of board members will decide whether any nominee sufficiently meets the award criteria. If a nominee is selected, a presentation will be made at the ESPC’s annual general meeting on May 21.

The deadline to submit nominations is midnight on April 14, 2015.
