The City of Longview Partners in Prevention’s Unity and Diversity Committee is accepting nominations for the 19th Annual Unity Honors Award.

Last year I had the honor of attending the Annual Unity Honors Luncheon in Longview. Believe it or not, "social justice" is not a new "buzz word" for politics, there's community groups and organizations right here in East Texas that are working towards it. Each year they highlight those in the community who have committed to doing this amazing work with a special award.

The mission of the Unity and Diversity Committee is to overcome barriers to the full inclusion of all community members by: Protecting Human Rights, Challenging Discrimination, and Celebrating Diversity. Monthly meetings are held at noon, the first Monday of each month at the Longview Public Library. Please call Partners in Prevention at 903-237-1019 for more information about monthly meetings.

The Unity Honors is a lifetime achievement award that recognizes residents who have demonstrated leadership in promoting unity, mutual understanding, and social justice.

Nominations are also being accepted for Service Recognition of schools, businesses, or organizations that have done outstanding work with the past year while promoting diversity, unity, and creating a cooperative spirit for the greater good of the community.

Nomination forms are accepted online and paper forms available.
