Last spring we honored five unsung women who’ve devoted their lives to the greater good, in the tradition of Clara Lemlich following the Triangle Factory Fire in 1911.   See video from the 2016 event and interviews with the honorees here.

The Lemlich Awards honor women who have been working for the larger good their entire lives, in the tradition of those who sparked so many reforms in the aftermath of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire over one hundred years ago.

We honor—in the words of the poet Marge Piercy—people who:
jump into work head first
without dallying in the shadows…
who do what has to be done, again and again.
