Today, our good friend and Sparta Township neighbor Litsa Binder was bestowed with the “Peace Action People of the Year Award” by New Jersey Peace Action.
The award was presented at the Hasbrouck Heights Hilton, at an NJPA event celebrating the fifty nine years the group has been working for peace.
Litsa is shown here with her husband Sig prior to accepting the award and addressing the crowd.
Litsa joins a distinguished list of persons who have received the award over past years. The list includes Phil Donahue, Noam Chomsky, Amy Goodman, Carl Sagan, Dr. Benjamin Spock and Senators Mark Hatfield and Frank Lautenberg.
