Can’t wait to vote for Philly’s next district attorney and Court of Common Pleas judges on Nov. 7?
Here’s a chance to flex those voting muscles early: Social Innovations Journal’s second annual Social Innovations Awards are happening Jan. 24, 2018, and now is the time to vote for the winners.
The full list of nominees is up. But here’s the thing about the voting process: You can vote in only five categories per week, and then you can’t vote in categories that were featured in weeks past.
In other words, you snooze, you lose. Categories open for voting right now:
- Community and Behavioral Health
- Healthy Food and Food Access
- Human Rights and Human Dignity
- Race and Gender
We recognize a bunch of names on this list, such as Next Stop: Democracy! creator (and Generocity columnist) Lansie Sylvia, Sunday Suppers founder Linda Samost, Project H.O.P.E. Board President Brandy Bones and Mayor’s Office of Community Empowerment and Opportunity ED Mitch Little.
This first round closes on Friday, Oct. 27, so get to it. Check the Social Innovations website each week for future voting opportunities.
