Phoenix seeks MLK award nominations

Posted

The city of Phoenix is looking for nominations for the annual Living the Dream Award.

The award recognizes individuals who embody the ideas of Martin Luther King Jr.  “through their continued personal commitment to human relations and social justice,” according to a release announcing the award.

“The Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes exceptional individuals who have made Phoenix a better place to live through a lifelong dedication to promoting social and economic justice, defending civil rights and enhancing the dignity of all people,” the release stated.

“Nominations must emulate the lifelong dedication of Calvin C. Goode.”

Goode, who died in 2020, served 22 years on the Phoenix City Council. He worked on a number of social-justice measures, including a program that ensured women- and minority-owned small businesses would receive a proportionate share of city business.

The deadline to submit a nomination online is 5 p.m. Friday, Sept. 9.
