Congratulations to Diane Iverson

Congratulations to our very own Diane Iverson, Director of Special Projects and Circles of Support, for being selected as the 2016 recipient of the Albert Lovejoy Social Justice Award. In keeping with the spirit of this prestigious award, Diane has been working on social justice projects for CCJ for many years. She and her husband Doug were founding members of Coalition for Compassion and Justice 15 years ago through association with the Prescott United Methodist Church. Now, CCJ is a stand-alone 501c3 organization supported by many area churches, private individuals and civic organizations in the quad-city area. In many ways, Diane has become the “face of CCJ” through programs such as Fair Start for school children, Warm for Winter and Family Christmas. The most recent outreach program that Diane directs is Books Before Bed which promotes child literacy and parental guidance to low-income families.

This prestigious award was named after Dr. Albert Lovejoy who died in 2009. He was active in the founding of Granite Peak UU Congregation and served in many leadership capacities. He had a heart for peace and justice efforts and was a quiet leader who engaged others in building healthy and just communities. Dr. Lovejoy was a volunteer at CCJ in the early years of the organization. Each year the Granite Peak congregation honors a community member who has been an outstanding advocate for social justice. Dr. Ron Barnes was the 2015 recipient.

Each year the Granite Peak Unitarian Universalist Church in Prescott sponsors an award dinner for presentation of the Albert Lovejoy Award. The dinner ceremony is April 23rd at 5:30 PM. Diane will be speaking as well as Peter Morales, President of the Unitarian Universalist Association. The Tom Pettit Social Justice Grant Award will also be awarded. Tickets for the Italian dinner are available at GPUUC at 882 Sunset Avenue in Prescott or by calling the church office at 928 541-0000. They are $25 each. The dinner is open to the public.
