This year is extra special. As part of the 2002 Progressive Awards Citizen Action will bestow a special "Lifetime Achievement Award" on retiring Deputy Speaker of the New York State Assembly, Honorable Arthur O. Eve. A tireless advocate for a quality education for all our children, Deputy Speaker Eve will be specially honored for his lifetime of advocacy on behalf of all people regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, income, and age.

All proceeds will benefit Citizen Action of New York
