LWVMC has chosen Janet E. Jackson as the recipient of Democracy In Action Award for 2017.
Janet is president and CEO of United Way of Central Ohio, one of the largest United Way organizations in the country. Under her leadership, United Way is mobilizing the central Ohio community to reduce poverty. Prior to joining the United Way, Janet served six years as Columbus City Attorney and nearly 10 years as a judge on the Franklin County Municipal Court.
Democracy In Action is the premier event of the League and provides the opportunity to come together with friends, supporters, and community leaders to recognize an outstanding individual or group.
Winners demonstrate a long-term commitment to and a zeal for increasing the level of political activism and knowledge within the community.
Janet's accomplishments are many and she has received many honors and awards. She embodies as does the League, a strong belief that our democratic system of government works best when citizens are active and informed.
So mark your calendars for May 9, 2017 as we honor Janet E. Jackson.
