SCLC to Honor Hillary Clinton at Annual Convention

The former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will be honored with this year’s “Realizing the Dream Award” at the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in Atlanta.

What We Know: 

  • Clinton will be presented with the award at SCLC Women’s Empowerment Luncheon July 19.
  • Southern Christian Leadership Conference President Charles Steele stated “Mrs. Clinton has been close to us ever since I have been president of SCLC…She has always been supportive of the work that we do and has always been a good role model.”
  • With the 2020 election approaching, this will be a major appearance for her. Steele invited several of the candidates to speak at the convention, but none have confirmed.
  • “We don’t want to make the convention too political, but we are always open to them,” Steele said.
  • The theme of the meeting is “Maintaining the Global Village: Housing, Health and Our Common Humanity.” Along with saluting civil rights legends and individuals fighting poverty, the organization is slated to release plans for a new program to provide affordable housing in neglected areas in the United States.

Congratulations to Clinton for this amazing award!
