Every year, Citizen Action of New York’s Capital District Chapter holds The Jim Perry Progressive Leadership awards to honor grassroots activists who have been part of building our community and the progressive movement.

The Jim Perry Progressive Leadership Awards is a fun and inspiring evening of hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, and recognition of social progress.

Do you know someone who you think should be recognized for their work? Nominate them for an award by July 16, 2018!

The ceremony is named in honor of Jim Perry. A founding member of Capital District Citizen Action and Empire State Pride Agenda, Perry dedicated his life to grassroots activism in the Capital Region.

Help us honor those who are working in the spirit of Jim Perry’s commitment to building a New York that works for all of us. Nominate someone today!
