Please join us in honoring these amazing progressive leaders:

Ruth Flower:
Former Associate Executive Secretary for Legislative Program at the Friends Committee for National Legislation for ten years, Ruth directed and coordinated the team of lobbyists and managed a lobbying portfolio of domestic issues. During her time at FCNL, Ruth has led coalition lobbying efforts addressing a wide range issues, including welfare reform, health care, religious freedom, affordable housing, federal budget priorities, civil liberties, death penalty, immigration, campaign finance reform, Native American concerns, and the challenge of poverty in the U.S.

Wade Henderson:
Wade is well known for his expertise on a wide range of civil rights, civil liberties, and human rights issues, and is the author of numerous articles on civil rights and public policy issues. Since taking the helm of The Leadership Conference in June 1996, Wade has worked diligently to address emerging policy issues of concern to the civil and human rights community and to strengthen the effectiveness of the coalition. Under his stewardship, The Leadership Conference has become one of the nation’s most effective advocates for civil and human rights.

Join in the celebration and support!
