Astraea is delighted to uplift the awardees of the 2nd Acey Social Justice Feminist Award. The Award recognizes lesbian and trans women of color over the age of 62 who have made under-recognized contributions to our movements, and who often have unmet financial needs as they age. Please join us in congratulating this year’s awardees: Julia Bennett, Brenda Joyce Crawford, Miss Major Griffin-Gracy, and Norma Timbang.

This year’s nominating committee consisted of Vega Subramaniam, Mary Anne Adams, Beth Richie, Rickke Mananzala, Ashleigh Eubanks, and Katherine Acey; you can read more about the 2019 Committee here.
