On April 2 , 2011, Senator Loretta Weinberg and Rev. Bruce Davidson were recipients of the first Spirit of Humanity Awards, given by the UULMNJ Public Policy Network for exemplifying a commitment to justice, compassion and equality in New Jersey public affairs.
The beautiful etched glass awards were given at a Champagne Reception, where both Rev. Davidson and Senator Weinberg noted that our organization has made a large impact in a short period of time.
Senator Weinberg urged us to continue to provide support and encouragement for legislators who share our values, and Rev. Davidson reminded us that we are a necessary counterbalance to the strong conservative religious voices that are already out there. Funds were raised to support the work of the Public Policy Network.
