McKinley Foundation announced their 2018 Social Justice Award winners

Each year, the McKinley Foundation recognizes individuals and organizations that engage in social justice work in the community. Here are this year’s honorees:

  • Kathleen Hu, a U of I engineering student who started an organization called Dibbs, using technology to connect grocery stores’ surplus food for donations to local food agencies;
  • YouMatter Studios, a company founded by students to develop video games that celebrate diversity and inclusivity;
  • Danielle Chynoweth who, for 23 years, has been an institution builder for social and racial justice in the C-U community; and
  • Faith in Place, a nonprofit organization that brings together social and environmental justice working with houses of faith across the state.

We wrote about Kathleen Hu and Dibbs last August.
