Amy Traub Wins Social Justice Award
Amy Traub, DMI's Director of Research, was recently awarded a Cornerstone Award from Jewish Funds for Justice, which calls itself a "public foundation guided by Jewish history and tradition." The award is given to people who "exemplify strong Jewish leadership and values through their work in the secular nonprofit and organizing communities." According to the foundation's website,
"Low-income community organizations, though often ignored by a society that glorifies political and economic power, are the cornerstones of building a better America. Young Jews who are inspired by Jewish tradition or teaching to become leaders at these organizations, are the cornerstones of building a better Jewish community.
The Jewish Funds for Justice created the Cornerstone Awards to honor these men and women as Jewish leaders and to support the work of their organizations."
Amy was one of four honorees chosen from a pool of 85 applicants. Congratulations, Amy!
