Activist gets $25,000 award from law firm
The Reverend Gloria White-Hammond, a Boston community activist and a pediatrician, will receive a $25,000 leadership award from law firm Duane Morris LLP, the firm said today.
At an event planned for this month at the Museum of Fine Arts, White-Hammond will receive an award that recognizes her "invaluable contributions and humanitarian achievements," particularly with regard to easing the suffering in Darfur, said a statement from Duane Morris, a national law firm with offices in Boston.
According to Duane Morris, White-Hammond will donate the monetary award to a group she cofounded, My Sisterís Keeper, which describes itself on its website as a "women-led, women-focused, humanitarian action group."
