Each year Community Shares of Wisconsin honors 3 Change-Makers and 24 Backyard Heroes who work to advance social and environmental justice in our communities throughout Wisconsin. These local award winners are nominated by our member nonprofits, organizations on the front lines of issues important to you – from housing rights to safe, clean drinking water.
We will be celebrating our 2019 Community Change-Maker Award winners!
This year’s Change-Makers are:
- Talib Akbar, Nominated by MOSES-WISDOM of Madison – Winner of the Linda Sundberg Civil Rights Defender Award
