Layton Activism Award Celebration!

When EDT

Jack Layton was a joyful and passionate activist who believed in our collective strength to organize for transformative change in every conceivable way. 

A key component of the Layton Legacy project is to encourage and support new waves of activism; to support the long-standing and new emerging groups who are committed to organizing for change in their community.

That’s why we’re excited to invite you to join us on Monday, August 22, 2022 for the Layton Activism Award Celebration. This initiative, as part of Jack's Legacy, is designed to amplify the activism we see all around us. To support, grow, and move forward with the changes we want to see.

HOW CAN YOU PARTICIPATE?

We invite you to apply for the second annual Layton Activism Award. We strongly encourage self-nominations! To nominate someone, please use this form:

Let us know what you and your group are doing and why. Describe and share your passion for change, and that of your group/organization. Your involvement not only helps grow the movement overall, it opens up opportunities for your group to access needed resources and training as you continue your activism.

The winner will receive an award of $5000.00 and an opportunity to receive organizing for change training with the Institute for the Change Leaders.
