Do you know people working tirelessly to end racism? Nominate them for the Facing Race Ambassador Award!
The Facing Race Ambassador Award is an annual award made by MCF member The Saint Paul Foundation. It celebrates and honors the leadership of individuals working toward racial equity. The award is part of the Facing Race We’re All In This Together anti-racism initiative, which seeks to create a community in which everyone feels safe, valued and respected.
In 2014, the Foundation will name:
- One award recipient for work focused in the East Metro (Dakota, Ramsey and Washington counties)
- One award recipient for work focused anywhere in Minnesota
- Up to three honorable mentions for work focused anywhere in Minnesota
Award recipients may direct a cash award of $10,000 to a nonprofit or public entity to further racial equity.
The nomination deadline is December 11, 2013. The honorees will be celebrated at an event on the evening of April 7, 2014 in St. Paul.
