Greetings Alums for Social Change,

I am writing to let you know of a nomination opportunity for Dartmouth's Social Justice Awards. We are wondering if you might know of a likely candidate to receive this honor this coming January. Nominations for the Awards are due Saturday, October 30. Please let us know if you can recommend an honoree! Following is the nomination information.

Martin Luther King Jr.
SOCIAL JUSTICE AWARDS at Dartmouth College

2011 Nominations due Saturday, October 30, 2010

The MLK Social Justice Awards recognize members of the Dartmouth and Upper Valley communities who have contributed significantly to social justice, peace, civil rights, education, public health, or environmental justice. Those eligible to be nominated for individual awards include Dartmouth, DMS, Thayer, Tuck, and A&S alumni/ae, as well as current and former faculty, and staff. A separate category honors student and graduate student groups. The awards honor those who have demonstrated their compassion, perseverance, courage, and leadership by engaging in the difficult work of fostering human dignity and our common humanity through their projects, programs, and visions. The award recipients will be selected by the MLK Celebration Committee and will be honored at an awards ceremony planned for late January, 2011.

Nominations should include a short biography and any other information that highlights the candidate's or student group's commitment to social justice.

Nominations must be submitted by October 30, and should be submitted by email to or through our web site at

I hope you can help us, and I thank you for all your inspirational work!

Best wishes,
Christine Crabb '90

Donations to Haiti
Haiti could still use your help, as the rebuilding and recovery process is going to be long and difficult and there are many people still in need of relief in the interim. Fortunately, two organizations with Dartmouth affiliations are on the front lines.

Donate to Haiti Earthquake Relief
As you have likely heard, a devastating earthquake hit Haiti yesterday. While an earthquake of this magnitude could cause a tragedy anywhere, the impact is far worse in country with such limited resources and infrastructure. Financial assistance is desperately needed, and one of the organizations on the front lines in Haiti is the organization founded by Dartmouth President Jim Yong Kim, Partners in Health.

new web resource for orgs & volunteers launched by '02 is a new volunteering site that connects folks with time or resources -- in any amount -- with visionary NGOs around the world who could really put 'em to good use.

have an old camera you need to rehome? love to play with Picasa now and then? whatever you've got to offer -- a dozen computers or a single beautiful photo, a couple of hours a week or a couple of hours a year -- why not put this to work for a cause you care about?

likewise, if you work with an organization that could benefit from some assistance or extra resources, please feel free to post requests and/or browse volunteer postings!

Calling all members - weigh in on new President search
This is an important moment in Dartmouth's history for socially-concerned alums to mobilize. You likely received an email from the Board of Trustees seeking input for a Statement of Leadership for the current presidential search. Since Dartmouth alums will be very vocal about their vision for the future of the college, it is important that social and environmental goals remain at the forefront.
