Genesis, the San Francisco Bay Area regional affiliate of the Gamaliel Foundation (national community organizing network), annually presents the Carl Anthony Legacy Award for Bay Area justice, sustainability, and equity heroes. This year, Genesis has announced that Sheila Jordan, Superintendent of Alameda County Office of Education, will be the recipient of the 2014 Carl Anthony Legacy Award.
Sheila Jordan has been a courageous champion for the Free Bus Pass for Youth of Alameda County, helping to win $15 million of Transportation Expenditure Plan funds for Youth Bus Passes. Genesis will be honoring Sheila's vision and hard work to provide at-risk students and all students the tools they need to build productive lives.
We invite you to join with Genesis in the celebration of our community visionary leader, Sheila Jordan. Breakthrough Communities is deeply inspired by the work of the Gamaliel foundation nationally, and its regional affiliate, Genesis. For more information on these remarkable organizations, visit:
