New York human rights attorney Lynne Stewart will be present to receive the 2005 Sacco & Vanzetti Social Justice Award, presented by the church each year to an outstanding individual or organization who has worked tirelessly for social justice. Ms. Stewart will speak about her life's work fighting for the human and civil rights of oppressed peoples in over thirty years as a legal representative. Her own case, a result of the Bush Administration's use of the war on terror to curtail rights and criminalize advocacy, has generated huge support. We are proud to be part of that growing support.

Nice intel gathering. Did you pay a ten year to check the CCB website to obtain this public information, or did you go through the 30 seconds of trouble yourself?
