On Sunday, April 3, 2016 I was honored to receive the Civics Soldier Award from Jersey City based Civics for the Emerging Activist, founded and run by Tai Williams, Jersey City activist, author, poet, entrepreneur and a force to be reckoned with.
There were several awards handed out. Lynda Weinstein recieved the Lifetime Activist Award. Her work dates back to the 1980s in Hoboken. Student of the year was awarded to Jessica Abdelnabbi.
I was honored to be selected for the Civic Soldier Award, along with my fellow honorees Nicholas Ciavatta and Jennifer Watterman.
It was beautiful to see my fellow community activists and artists be acknowledged for all of the hard work, energy, effort and dedication that they each put into uplifting Jersey City's community
