Miami, Fl. – Louise Stubins will receive the National Council of Jewish Women ( NCJW) Kendall Section’s Hannah G. Solomon Award on May 22, 2016, for her dedication, leadership and volunteerism in her community for over 50 years. The presentation will be made at the Peacock Garden Café, located at 2889 McFarlane Rd, in Coconut Grove, between 11am and 2pm. NCJW’s Hannah G. Solomon Award is presented to a woman who has helped to change and expand the role of other women in vital areas of community life, and whose leadership has motivated others to fight for change. The award commemorates the spirit of Hannah G. Solomon, who established the National Council of Jewish women in 1893. Ms. Solomon, an early social activist, led the organization in its landmark battles for laws restricting child labor, for child welfare programs, and for improved housing, education, and health care for the poor. This past October 22, 2015, the NCJW Kendall section , also presented the Hannah G. Solomon Award to Katherine Fernandez-Rundle, Miami-Dade County’s State Attorney for her dedication and commitment to resolving the issues of Sex Trafficking that plague our city, our state and our nation. The National Council of Jewish women (NCJW) is a grassroots organization of volunteers and advocates who turn progressive ideals into action.
