The New England First Amendment Coalition is seeking nominations for its 2020 Antonia Orfield Citizenship Award.
The award is given to an individual from one of the six New England states who has fought for information crucial to the public’s understanding of its community or what its government is doing — or not doing — on its behalf.
The candidate should have shown tenacity or bravery in the face of difficulty while obtaining information that the public has a right to know.
Nomination materials can be found here.
The deadline for submissions is January 10, 2020.
The award will be presented at NEFAC’s 10th annual New England First Amendment Awards luncheon from 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. on February 7 at the Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel, 606 Congress Street in Boston.
We'd love to hear from you
