25th Anniversary & Annual Loving Civil Rights Award Reception

The Tavern at Keney Park, Windsor (on the Hartford/Windsor line)
Thursday, May 30, 2019 – 5:30-7:30pm

Named for the couple that fought the ultimate form of housing discrimination when they were barred from living in Virginia because of their interracial marriage, the Center’s annual Mildred and Richard Loving Civil Rights Award honors civil rights leaders and thinkers, those who have worked to change the course of history, those who have challenged how history is written, and those who are making history today. In recognition of the Center’s 25th Anniversary, the 2019 Loving Civil Rights Award will be presented to the organization’s founding committee: 

  • Phil Tegeler, Executive Director, Poverty & Race Research Action Council
  • Jeff Freiser, Former (Retired) Executive Director, CT Housing Coalition
  • Nancy Hronek, Greater Hartford Legal Aid
  • Barbara Perry (Retired)

In addition, Day Pitney LLP will be honored with this year’s George J. and Patricia K. Ritter Pro Bono Award for their service to the Center and our clients.

We’re looking forward to lots of exciting changes to this year’s event!  Enjoy generous BBQ-themed hors d’oeuvres, margaritas, and even an ice cream sundae bar in a beautiful outdoor venue overlooking historic Keney Park, located just minutes from downtown Hartford on the line between Hartford and Windsor. See the unique new painting by celebrated local artist Georges Annan-Kingsley, commissioned especially for the Center’s 25th anniversary (the painting will also be up for auction!).  The incomparable John Motley will return as our Master of Ceremonies.
