2002 International Recipients
Ulrichs, Mother Courage, and Eleanor Awards
The goal of presenting these awards to to recognize the hard work and dedication of the recipients. In addition it would be our hope to increase awareness within and outside the GLBTI Community of the recipients and their efforts, thus increasing support. A more steadfast, consistent, and connected community is required for these recipients to be successful, and for our GLBTI community to further develop to the fullest positive potential.
It is in an understanding of dedication, and a strong appreciation of efforts and actions that these awards are bestowed. With pride the StoneWall Society announces the 2002 recipients of the International level of the Community Awards Program. (criteria)
