Rex Grantee Bradley Angel Wins 2008 Cultural Freedom Award

Bradley Angel, the Co-Founder and Executive Director of Greenaction for Health an Environmental Justice, was just awarded the Lannan Foundation 2008 Cultural Freedom Award. This award honors individuals working on behalf of communities struggling to uphold and defend their right to cultural freedom and diversity. As defined by Lannan, Cultural Freedom is a basic human right dependent on political, economic, and environmental justice.

The Rex Foundation supported Greenaction in 2006 with a grant in recognition of their outstanding work mobilizing community power to win victories that change government and corporate policies and practices to protect health and to promote environmental justice.Using technical expertise and people power, Greenaction has been on the front lines of preventing incinerators being located in communities that are the least prepared to stand up for their rights.

Its another testament to the exceptionally relevant work of the Rex Foundation that we are identifying and supporting organizations that are important participants in the efforts to build a better world!
