The 55th Annual Sidney Hillman Foundation Awards have been scheduled for Tuesday, June 14 6PM-8PM, at the UNITE HERE New York Joint Board, 31 W. 15th Street, New York City. The Sidney Hillman Awards, given annually since 1950, are among the most prestigious awards given to journalists, writers and public figures who pursue social justice and public policy for the common good. These awards reflect the vision and commitment of Sidney Hillman, president of the Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America (a predecessor union of UNITE HERE), whose tireless efforts to bring dignity and respect to working people left a lasting legacy. UNITE HERE is proud to continue the Sidney Hillman tradition. UNITE HERE board members and staff are invited to attend; please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP or for more information.
