ROCLA's Rice and Beans is around the corner! Here's last year's!
On March 2, 2012, the Rochester Committee on Latin America held its annual Rice and Beans and White Dove Award dinner at the Downtown Presbyterian Church in Rochester, NY.
The International White Dove Award went to the Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti (IJDH) and its Haitian affiliate, Bureau des Avocats Internationaux (BAI). Brian Concannon, Jr., Esq., Director of IJDH, gave the keynote address and accepted the award on behalf of IJDH and BAI.
The Local White Dove Award went to Bob Kaiser, ROCLA’s Convener, and Marilyn Kaiser, Membership Chair. The Kaisers were honored with the White Dove for their long-term leadership, for tireless completion of day-to-day administrative chores, keeping ROCLA morale high, and keeping the organization on course.
The 2013 Annual Rice and Beans Dinner and White Dove Award ceremony is going to be held on Friday, March 1, 2013 at the Gates Presbyterian Church (1049 Wegman Road, Rochester, NY). The international recipient is the Global Justice Ecology Project. Locally, Tom Ward will get the award.
