Advent Lutheran Wins Human Rights Award!
James B. Hunter Human Rights Awards are given in recognition of outstanding achievement in the area of human rights and diversity made in Arlington County by an individual, a community group, a non-profit organization, or a business establishment.
And this year, Advent Lutheran has been recognized!! For the past 70 years, Advent Lutheran Church (ALC) has served as a voice for the voiceless and a refuge for the oppressed in Arlington County and beyond. ALC willingly puts on the mantle of servant leadership and continually answers the call to help those in need, advance diversity, and advocate for human rights on behalf of the residents of Arlington County.
This prestigious award is named for the late James B. Hunter III, former Arlington County Board member and chair, who dedicated much of his life to serving those with few natural advantages in accessing government.
The public is invited to a virtual awards ceremony to celebrate this year’s James B. Hunter honorees at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 9, 2021.
