This year’s Estelle Witherspoon Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient!
Honoring Marian Wright Edelman
Marian Wright Edelman, founder and president emerita of the Children's Defense Fund (CDF), has been an advocate for disadvantaged Americans for her entire professional life. Under her leadership as president for 45 years, CDF has become the nation’s strongest voice for children and families. The Children's Defense Fund’s Leave No Child Behind® mission is to ensure every child a Healthy Start, a Head Start, a Fair Start, a Safe Start, and a Moral Start in life and successful passage to adulthood with the help of caring families and communities.
During a year marked with uncertainty and challenges from a global pandemic, the resilience, strength and commitment of The Federation of Southern Cooperatives/Land Assistance Fund to its members and communities shine through.
