Event description

Description

Since 1950, the Lauren K. Weinberg Humanitarian Award has been given to individuals and organizations whose dedication and service to our community promote respect, understanding, and tolerance among all people. Humanitarian honorees envision a world where all human beings are of full and equal worth, live in safe, sustainable communities and are able to enjoy the full range of life’s benefits. Our event this year will celebrate this year's finalists and winners, and will be an opportunity for leaders in the field of community justice to come together to celebrate hard work and creativity in changing the world.

This year's finalists include:
Individual award: Jeremy Porter and Devine Carama
Entrepreneur award: Ouita Michel and Dan Wu
Organization award: Community Inspired Solutions, Glean KY, Take Back Cheapside, Independence Place

Tickets are $50 per person for an individual ticket, $100 per person for a host ticket (we invite a social justice warrior or community member on your behalf) or $650 for a sponsorship ticket (which incubates a growing Plantory organization for 6 months). Heavy hors d'oeuvres and 2 drinks are included with each ticket. Cash bar available.

(We want to welcome everyone who wants to join us. If you would like to join but the ticket price is too high, please get in touch. We have volunteer spots and some sponsored tickets available.)

Lauren K. Weinberg served for thirteen years (1980 – 1993) as the Executive Director of the Bluegrass Region of the National Conference for Community and Justice, which became the Kentucky Conference for Community and Justice and eventually the Plantory. Lauren worked tirelessly to destroy the barriers that separate and divide us, such as race, religion, culture and ethnicity. She demonstrated in her personal and professional life a deep understanding and concern for others, looking beyond the surface of a person to see both the individual’s uniqueness and what they held in common with others. Lauren developed, implemented and administered highly effective and publicly acclaimed youth programs. The Humanitarian Awards and the ongoing work of our organization continue Lauren’s legacy of community inclusiveness and collaboration.
