In memory of SFPIRG volunteer Usamah Ansari, this annual award supports creative social justice work including art, poetry, music and writing. Individuals or groups can apply. Priority is given to communities of colour, refugees and youth. The 2022 application deadline is Thursday, February 24 at 4pmMake sure to apply early!
