Harriet Tubman Freedom Awards and Gospel Brunch - Promotion - Banner

Join us as we acknowledge an incredible slate of honorees who’s outstanding commitment to others is the embodiment of the characteristics that made Harriet Tubman who she was.  Recipients of the Harriet Tubman Freedom Award have “impact of life” in their work, but most important, have personal interaction track records with a deeply open and accepting “heart song”.   Their continued work and dedication means they are contributors to “the Celebration of  What It Means To Be Free”.

The 2018 Honorees

2019 Honorees will be announced in Spring 2019. We look forward to honoring those who make our world a better place and embody all of who Harriet Tubman was.
