Nominations open for City of Toronto's 2015 Access, Equity & Human Rights Awards

Each year, the City of Toronto recognizes outstanding individuals and organizations for their contributions to promoting equity and access to civic participation with the Access, Equity, and Human Rights Awards.  This is a great opportunity to acknowledge those who work to combat racism, sexism, homophobia, homelessness, illiteracy, and other barriers to social, cultural, economic, and political equity in Toronto.

The awards include: the Aboriginal Affairs Award, the Access Award for Disability Issues, the Constance E. Hamilton Award on the Status of Women, the Pride Award for LGBT Issues, and the William P. Hubbard Award for Race Relations.

If you wish to nominate an individual or community group, please visit www.toronto.ca/civicawards

The deadline for nominations is Monday, May 11, 2015 and award recipients will be honoured at a ceremony in December.

Please join me in recognizing those who are fighting for a more equitable Toronto.
