Professor Eric Janus will be receiving the American Civil Liberties Union of Minnesota’s Earl Larson Award next week. The Earl Larson Award was created by the ACLU-Minnesota in 1996 to honor attorneys who have pursued a lifelong commitment to justice and civil liberties work. The Award is named after one of the founders of the ACLU-Minnesota, Federal Judge Earl Larson. The NAACP Minneapolis will also be honored with the Changemaker Award which recognizes people and organizations who are in the forefront of the struggle for justice and equality.
The Earl Larson Award Ceremony is being held on Wednesday, November 28 from 5:30-7:30pm at The Depot in Minneapolis. A group of Mitchell Hamline faculty are attending the event and there are extra tickets remaining for Mitchell Hamline students. Tickets will be available on a first come, first serve basis and must be claimed by Monday, November 26. Please email Professor Fuith (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in attending.
