Open Communities is excited about our 5th Miller Award Benefit – SAY YES! We are passionate about keeping the dream of affordable housing and social justice alive on the North Shore. We invite you to join us and help us to continue building holistic, inclusive and vibrant communities.
This special event will be held at the Woman’s Club of Evanston, 1702 Chicago Avenue, Evanston, Illinois on Tuesday, June 10, 2014 from 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm. We have established an award to honor the legacy of justice champion Jean R. Cleland with the Jean R. Cleland Social Action Award and we are expanding the scope of the award named for Rayna and Marvin Miller from the Housing Justice Award to the Community Justice Award. Both awards signify the organization’s transformation in 2012 from one focused exclusively on fair and affordable housing in the northern suburbs to one that promotes positive change by educating, advocating and organizing for economic and social justice as well.
This year’s Miller Award winner, Father Robert Oldershaw, Pastor Emeritus of St. Nicholas Church in Evanston, and Cleland Award winners Ed & Ellen McManus, Wilmette disability rights and affordable housing advocates, are inspirations and catalysts for progressive change. Click here for more information on the honorees. By conferring these awards we hope to encourage and challenge others to act likewise as welcoming neighbors to all people and groups.
Our theme for this year, SAY YES! expresses these goals. Together, we can create the “Beloved Community” that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. envisioned where all people share in the wealth of the earth.
