Join us in recognizing community members committed to civil liberties and civil rights:
William Gorham Rice Civil Libertarian of the Year: David Cecsarini and Next Act Theatre, for insisting that the show must go on in the face of censorship. When Phantom Cicada Theatre was forced out of its venue, The Bible: The Complete Word of God (Abridged) was moved to Next Act where the musical played to sold-out audiences.
Eunice Z. Edgar Lifetime Achievement: Barbara J. Miner, for her tireless fight in support of public schools. She is the author of the recently released book Lessons from the Heartland: A Turbulent Half-Century of Public Education in an Iconic American City (New York: New Press, 2013).
Jack and Lucy Rosenberg Youth Civil Libertarian of the Year: Michael Freytes, a senior at Alliance High School, for his dedication as a community organizer and leader of the Public Art Student Alliance.
