Community Renewal Society to Recognize Emerging Chicago-Area Leaders

The Community Renewal Society (www.communityrenewalsociety.org), a progressive, faith-based organization that works to eliminate race and class barriers, has announced a new awards program, the 35 under 35 Leadership Awards, and requests nominations of young leaders across the Chicago metropolitan region. The awards will honor 35 young people, all under the age of 35, who are using fresh approaches to tackle pressing social issues. Nominees will be judged on whether or not their work bridges racial, ethnic, generational, or geographic divides. The awardees will be announced at a reception following Community Renewal’s Finding Common Ground: the State of Race and Poverty conference in June 2007. To be eligible for consideration, nominees must be 35 years of age or younger on January 31, 2007, and must have a minimum of three years working in the area for which they are being nominated. The work of nominees can vary — from community organizing to fundraising to research. For more information about the awards and to access application materials, visit the Community Renewal Society Web site. The deadline for nominations is January 31, 2007.
