In many workplaces today, it can take a lot of courage for a young woman to stand up for what's right. Do you know someone who has shown that kind of courage?
We are looking for working women 35 years or younger who stood up for workers' rights and a voice in the workplace in the face of management opposition. The nominee can be a young woman attempting to organize her workplace or standing up for justice in an organized workplace.
The winner will get a $1,000 cash award. Nominate your candidate by August 28 at the foundation's website: http://www.bergermarks.org/.
This year the Berger-Marks Foundation has added a new Courageous Young Worker Award. A panel of union, civic and activist leaders will make the final selection and present the award in the fall.
