2015 Tribute to Change: Environmental Justice

The 2015 Tribute to Change was held on Thursday, October 1 from 5:30-8:00 pm at the National Museum of American Jewish History (5th and Market Streets). The Tribute was a huge success!

Each year at the Tribute to Change, Bread & Roses Community Fund honors local activists who spark collective movements to advance visions of a more just society. People who care about social justice in the Philadelphia region gather to connect with each other, to celebrate recent victories, and to help fund the next chapter of the story of grassroots change.

Funds raised from the Tribute to Change will be used to support Bread & Roses’ programs in the upcoming year: giving grants to local grassroots organizations, expanding the training offered to community groups, and convening coalitions to build more power for real change.

This year we honored environmental justice activists–remarkable people who are taking bold and transformative action for the environment in ways that also challenge racism and economic injustice.

The 2015 Tribute to Change Honorees are:
Iris Brown & Tomasita Romero, Paul Robeson Lifetime Achievement Award
Amy Laura Cahn, Trailblazer Award
Mitch Chanin, Emerging Leader Award
