Social Justice Awards

Created as a result of a resolution passed at the 2016 NYSUT RA, this award recognizes those locals that have made a collective and sustained contribution to promoting social justice and human rights during the previous year.

The award is named after longtime NYSUT Civil and Human Rights Committee Member and activist Ken Kurzweil, who spent years educating fellow NYSUT members and the local community on civil rights, social justice and human rights issues.
