The Planning Committee will accept nominations for 3 different community leader awards. We will accept nominations until June 30th, and the committee will make final decisions. The community leaders will receive an award and speak at the event on Sunday, July 15th 2018 at Loring Park in Minneapolis, MN on the main stage.
The 3 community leader awards are the following:
Visionary Award - a community leader who has demonstrated visionary leadership to advance equity and justice with and for refugee communities in Minnesota.
Innovator Award - a community leader who has demonstrated creative and artistic work to advance the stories of refugee communities in new and innovative ways.
Youth Award - a youth community leader who has demonstrated a commitment to work with youth to advance a vision that unites all communities.
The thousands of refugees who have made Minnesota their home are vital and enriching to the overall fabric of our culture, and we hope to recognize a few of the many outstanding leaders who are working toward equity, inclusion and justice for all.
