A Tribute to Maria Leavey
The Maria Leavey Award will be presented annually at the America's Future Now conference to an unsung hero of the progressive movement whose behind-the-scenes labor makes a big difference for social justice. The award commemorates the life of Maria Leavey, a political operative of extraordinary talent, commitment, and selflessness, who passed away much too young, on December 31, 2006. This video features testimonials to Maria's life and work and the first two recipients of the award in her honor.
